Founded in 1906 when a group of 12 business publishers gathered in Niagara Falls, NY, to combat a threatened postal increase—from one cent to two cents per pound—American Business Media has since been active in various legislative and regulatory initiatives. In line with the transformation of the media industry, ABM currently represents its members in Washington on a wide range of issues that could impact industry business practices, including privacy/behavioral advertising, postal rates and reform, collection and use of data, geolocation, net neutrality and more.
Latest Policy Brief (January 2012)
ABM’s Information Policy Committee (IPC) has been active in studying and developing ABM positions on the new issues (most recently privacy and anti-piracy legislation) that will affect information providers in the coming years.
ABM members can also take advantage of limited, but invaluable, free legal consultation services on issues such as postal rates and classifications, privacy, piracy, tax, spam/fax and human resources.
