Welcome to the Independent Internet Press Association

Web Site,Their is power in numbers and the more of us that are joined together like our hard copy cousin the more rights we can obtain, here you can find out who we are, how to join and how to take advantage of the many programs and services available to help our members publish better Online newspapers. Among the many programs and services you will be able to gain access to here will be the latest industry news; member services and information as well as member newspaper web sites and other journalism sites of interest. You may also post questions and answers and share information on the IIP Forum."> The Independent Internet Press Association's main goals are to promotes growth and excellence in community journalism through technology, networking, education and recognition between its members, to gain the legal right for our members to become the paper of record for their community instead of, cases where the paper of record is owned by a larger company that is not resident in your community or you have no paper in you community and must rely on a paper in another city as the paper of record. The law's were written previous to the arrival of the Internet, they need to be updated to include local Internet news sites, not to exclude local papers of record. Simply because you are a paperless journal and give your news away as a free service to the community, The laws that were applied previous to the Internet excludes you from paticipation in revenues generated by this law, unless you have a newspaper that adds a web site then the laws provide them with an unfair business advantage. We have adopted the same code of ethics as that of theNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF PRESS AGENCIES
