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).

Writers’ Day in Court

By Op-Ed Editor | February 25, 2008

Montreal’s Electronic Rights Defence Committee, a coalition of writers resisting the plundering of their rights by the Montreal Gazette and the corporate empire behind it, go into court today to seek authorization to proceed with their class action lawsuit. Montreal writers were gathering at the Palais de Justice this morning to support them.

Interesting to note that last week lots of those big corporate interests were jumping on the “free” internet bandwagon, hoping to widen their ability to appropriate the work of others with impunity. For this 40,000 Facebookers are cluttering up the networks?
