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.
