The creative community has a new voice in Washington. Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA) and Rep. Howard Coble (R-NC) have launched the Congressional Creative Rights Caucus, which aims to educate Congress and the public “about the importance of preserving and protecting the rights of the creative community in the U.S.” Chu represents the 27th District in Los Angeles County, which accounts for nearly 140,000 jobs in the motion picture industry. Predicated on the relationship between American film, music, and software industry and the country’s economic health, the CRC seeks to promote and protect the “copyrights, human rights, First Amendment rights, and property rights” of artists and creators. In a statement today, the DGA voiced support for the new venture: ““We welcome the creation of the Creative Rights Caucus, as a significant recognition of the importance of the creative community to American innovation, culture and the economy. The works created by DGA members – the films, television shows and commercials seen by billions around the world – are the result of their unique creative vision, hard work, and dedication to storytelling”.
