Creative rights are critical to our book sector. When we value the rights of the people who write and make our books, we all benefit. We’re putting creative rights and their importance — for the local book sector and the country — in the spotlight.
The New Zealand Society of Authors, the Publishers Association of New Zealand and Copyright Licensing New Zealand have teamed up to put creative rights and their importance – for writers, the local book sector, and for our country – in the spotlight.
Creative Rights = Creative Reads is a campaign to help New Zealanders understand why creative rights like copyright are so important; how these rights underpin the success of Aotearoa New Zealand’s book sector; and how valuing creative rights contributes to the country’s social, economic and cultural wellbeing. The CLNZ Cultural Fund is contributing to this campaign.
