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).

Journalist studies copyright lobbying

By Op-Ed Editor | September 26, 2006

Simon Doyle, senior reporter at Ottawa’s Hill Times, has a new self-published book, Prey to Thievery, on the lobbying process by which recent copyright bills have been made and influenced. He’s writing about it in the current Hill Times – but he’s also made the book available as a purchaseable download at www.lulu.com. One of his teaser lines: the 1997 copyright revisions produced the most extensive lobbying the Hill had ever seen. And that was nothing compared to the workup to Bill C-60 last year.
