“promoting the value of copyright as an agent for creativity, jobs and growth”

Digital Media Wire reports that 29 “copyright-related organisations” have clubbed together to form a trade group to promote the benefits of copyright. The organisations comprise a mixture of companies (such as Disney and Microsoft) and trade bodies (such as RIAA and MPAA).

There is some commentary online looking at the effects of piracy on regions, including an article on how piracy inhibits the European creative industries and, more relevant to this new US trade body, this on the cost of piracy to the Los Angeles region.
