Creators' Rights Alliance

cra-logoThe Creators’ Rights Alliance brings together the major UK organisations representing copyright creators and performers throughout the media - particularly, television, radio and the press.

The CRA campaigns to:

  • Confront growing abuses of creators' rights in all media, particularly newspapers, magazines and broadcasting
  • Defend and improve the intellectual property rights of creators belonging to the member organisations
  • Promote greater understanding of creators' intellectual property rights within the industry and among the public.

The ABSW along with the CRA are supporters of the Fair Terms for Creators campaign.  The campaign states and promotes the seven areas of contract terms which need to be protected so that all creators, including members of the public, are protected when they sign a contract.
