NAA supports revisions to DOJ regulations; continues call for shield law
Attorney General Eric Holder submitted recommendations to the Department of Justice on July 12 governing subpoenas to the news media and their service providers. "In the wake of revelations that the Justice Department secretly subpoenaed Associated Press phone records and obtained e-mail content of a Fox News reporter, NAA applauds the attorney general's recommendations," NAA President and CEO Caroline Little said in a statement. "However, a federal shield law is still needed to protect journalists' confidential sources and the public's right to know. The attorney general's suggested revisions are a significant step in the right direction. But these changes alone will not prevent government overreach."

Hedge funds won't rush to advertise even after ban lifted
Ad Age
For those hoping a new rule from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission would lead to a flood of advertising from hedge funds and private equity firms, think again. While the regulator voted to lift an 80-year-old ban on public advertisements by firms seeking private investments, new marketing efforts will be subdued thanks to strict compliance requirements. For both large and small firms, the new rule may simply mean that they can now talk freely to the press and on their websites about their funds.

The problem with Instagram everywhere
The New Yorker
Instagram existed initially only on iPhones; its sequestration was part of its appeal, making it feel safe, almost private. Gradually, the app moved to other phones, which upset its original users. And now the company is trying to move its content to the open Web — the reverse of companies attempting shift their online content to mobile devices.

What if the price you had to pay to read a story dropped as more people clicked on it?
paidContent
There are plenty of experiments going on that are aimed at monetizing content in different ways — standard paywalls are an obvious example, along with "metered access" and other models, as well as crowdfunding campaigns that are designed to help fund specific pieces of long-form reporting. But one that hasn't gotten much traction so far is the "group buying" model.
