Australian writers, artists, musicians, filmmakers and other creators have a right to receive fair payment for their work. Changes to Australian copyright laws being pushed by the Productivity Commission, large organisations and big technology companies will greatly diminish these protections.
These changes will make it easier for large organisations to use Australian content without fair payment to creators. This is not just unfair, it is a threat to the future of Australian stories and means it will be even harder to make a living for the next generation of artists and creators.
Here are some tips to help make your letter more effective.
- The more personalised your message is, the more attention it's likely to receive.
- Keep it clean and polite, otherwise it will be ignored.
- If you’re a creator or educator - state your profession and the electorate you live in.
- Lovers of Australian culture and the local creative industries - explain why you love and support Australian creators
