Welcome to the website of the Creators' Copyright Coalition. We at the CCC are committed to access to our creative works just as we are committed to copyright: we work for copyright legislation that ensures both. Here on our op-ed pages we will be posting opinion, commentary, links, and news of interest to creators and others engaged in copyright reform. Elsewhere, you'll find our archive of studies, handbooks and press releases. And while we're not currently hosting a discussion forum, comments sent to us may be posted or noted here (unless you ask us not to).

Grants and Incomes

By Op-Ed Editor | November 25, 2005

It’s great news that the budget for the Canada Council for the Arts will be DOUBLED over the next three years. The Council is an indispensable support for the arts in Canada, and its grant support will help underwrite a lot of great projects

But creators need to get paid as well as get grants. Laws and policy decisions that make it impossible for creators to defend their copyrights, or fail to mandate Canadian content in satellite radio can take away more than the Canada Council can give.
