Letter to the Editor: Support for Tri-City Voice
What angers me is that it seems the Tri-City Voice is being punished for choosing to provide free copies of its newspaper as a public service.
I do not feel the Tri-City Voice should be required to offer "free" copies of its newspaper to the public. However, I applaud the Tri-City Voice for choosing to make legally-required public notice information available to the public for FREE!
What constitutes "substantial" subscriptions in this scenario?
I feel the Tri-City Voice, if current pressure from BANG [Bay Area News Group] is supported by the Court, will be forced to change its business plan in order to survive. I do not see how a requirement for Tri-City Voice to sell more subscriptions will allow Tri-City Voice to compete (with itself) by continuing to give out free copies.
In my opinion, the public would be the ultimate loser if BANG prevails.
