Author Diana Stevan shares the part of the writing process she finds magical and why meeting readers is the most pleasurable part of being an author. She also discusses how authors have seen licensing royalties decline in recent years.
The education sector’s current copying policies state it’s OK to copy a chapter of a published work for free. So what’s the big deal? It’s only one chapter. Watch to learn how this practice impacts the creation of content for tomorrow’s classrooms, and creates a value gap for those who produce those works. It’s time to take action to support Canadian creators & publishers during the Copyright Act review.
The Standing Committees on Industry, Science & Technology, and Canadian Heritage are reviewing the Copyright Act. Please help us urge the committee members who have been entrusted with this important task support restoring compensation to creators and publishers for educational copying so we can ensure the continued production of Canadian content that inspires generations to come.
