Welcome for Small Claims court
The Creators' Rights Alliance today welcomes the introduction of a Small Claims track to deal with copyright cases. Chair Mike Holderness says:
"Access to justice for individual creators is one of the seven pillars of the CRA's Manifesto for Creators.
"For too long creators, whether artists, photographers, writers or musicians, have been priced out of justice. This has contributed to the misperception that copyright is a special interest of the large corporations that can afford to bring cases.
"We hope that the ability of individual authors and performers to seek justice when their work is exploited without permission - usually by those large corporations - will help to redress that balance. It is is the rights of the individual creator that are the real foundation of the 'information economy' that is the best hope for economic growth in the UK."
