Some of the top names in the news industry are currently on board, including New York Times Co. and Washington Post Co, and they’re currently negotiating with Gannett, Tribune, Cox and News Corp. The project will license original news from the media companies and collect royalties from aggregators. The use of lawsuits and threats of lawsuits are already on the agenda. NewsRight’s first salesperson starts work this week.
