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).

The Platform Statement

By Op-Ed Editor | January 22, 2008

What do we need in copyright legislation?

The government doesn’t seem to know.

There’s a Facebook group somewhere that mostly believes we don’t need any copyright law.

And here (over there on the left side of this page, or links below) is The Creators Copyright Coalition’s proposal on what would be in a copyright law that put artists and creators at the heart of the process.
