Marburger brothers “driven by the fun and intellectual stimulation” of rescuing newspapers

Cleveland Plain Dealer
“I’ve invested more than 300 hours in this project and haven’t received a penny for it,” David Marburger says of his 62-page thesis that proposes changing the copyright law to save newspapers. No one from Congress has contacted the Cleveland attorney about his proposal, but he suspects it’s only a matter of time. “My brother [Dan, an econ professor] and I came up with the ideas, that’s all we can do. We’re not lobbyists. Someone else who sees the economic merit of our theories is going to have to take it from here.”
