Washington, DC The Copyright Alliance, which represents the copyright interests of over two million individual creators and more than 15,000 organizations across the spectrum of copyright disciplines, announced the launch of its new Community Partnership initiative.

This initiative will bring together like-minded, creator-based organizations as partners of the Copyright Alliance to advance the interests of creators and their works, while also promoting the importance of copyright protection and enforcement.

The first Community Partner to join this program is the BIPOC Podcast Creators. The BIPOC Podcast Creators is a networking and consulting organization that works to create a vibrant and supportive community for BIPOC podcasters.

In a statement about partnering with the Copyright Alliance, BIPOC Podcast Creators Founder Maribel Quezada Smith said, “BIPOC Podcast Creators is thrilled to partner with the Copyright Alliance as its first Community Partner, as it presents a unique opportunity for us to help underrepresented creators protect their works through copyright as they strive to grow their businesses. We believe that this collaboration will not only benefit individual creators but also contribute to a more diverse and inclusive podcast industry, where BIPOC voices are not only heard but also valued and protected.”

In a quote about the partnership, Copyright Alliance CEO Keith Kupferschmid stated, “We are pleased to bring together creator-focused organizations that advocate for their constituents through our Community Partner program while further educating them on their rights and protections under copyright law. We look forward to working with BIPOC Podcast Creators as our very first partner, as they continue to innovate regarding ways that BIPOC podcasters create, communicate, and thrive.”
