Support the Creative Coalition
4 December 2013
Equity is a member of the Creative Coalition Campaign (CCC), which campaigns to support the rights of creators and workers in the creative industries. Equity’s General Secretary, Christine Payne, is Chair of the campaign.
Copyright plays a key role in driving the success of the creative industries by allowing creators of content to make a return on their investment, allowing them to re-invest in new content.
Tackling online copyright infringement successfully requires a combination of different tactics such as using enforcement action to make it harder for sites offering infringing content to operate and educating consumers about the harm caused by online infringement and the availability of legal content services.
Above all, it is vital that the government and parliamentarians understand the importance of this issue and are supportive of all the necessary tactics to solve it. This is where you can make a difference by making your voice heard via the CCC’s campaign.
Please sign the petition calling on all political parties to address online infringement in their 2015 general election manifestos.
