Associations join forces to demand fair compensation for publishers and creators

Several associations, including News Media Canada, have joined forces as part of a campaign called ‘I Value Canadian Stories’ to demand that the federal government restore fair compensation to publishers and creators.

This move comes after a half decade where creators and publishers have found their ability to make a living under threat as a result of how the education sector has interpreted the addition of “education”, as well as “news gathering” as allowable under fair dealing.

The federal government is reviewing the Copyright Act. Please help us ensure that Canadian lawmakers support Canadian creators and publishers during the review process and restore balance between the need to compensate our creators for educational copying and the need to promote access to quality content.
