Data-driven insights and common-sense policy solutions for the creative economy

We advocate for the fundamental rights of creators, a strong global creative economy, and a thriving digital marketplace that encourages the production of new creative content and protects against piracy and illegal distribution.

Maintaining and growing a thriving U.S. film and television industry requires the continuation of supportive policies, including strong copyright laws that protect creators, enforcement measures to reduce piracy, and production incentive programs to encourage investment.
