  • C.R.E.A.T.O.R. - fair contract terms

Authors' earnings are in decline. Poor contract terms are part of the problem. We are campaigning for a review of laws applicable to creator contracts, introduction of legislation to address unfair contract terms and fair sharing of reward throughout the value chain. Find out more.

  • Copyright
