Writers Deserve to be Paid for their Work

The Writers' Union of Canada has produced this video about the rights of Canadian writers. They ask - simply, eloquently, logically - to be compensated for their work.

This video is in direct response to a proposed bill on copyright legislation that if passed through our parliament, would grant educational institutions the right to copy written material without compensating the writers who produced it. If your article or novel or textbook ends up being used in a classroom, you might not be paid one penny.

Writers’ groups are lending their voices to fight Bill C-32. This video explains why.

Nothing is sacred anymore. Not books, not words...nothing.
