Copyright Alliance CEO Initiates Statement on the Alliance’s 10th Anniversary

May 15, 2017


Washington, D.C. As the Copyright Alliance celebrates ten years of supporting the copyright community this month, CEO Keith Kupferschmid released the following statement:

“I’m both proud and humbled to be CEO of the Copyright Alliance as it celebrates ten years of service this month. During the past decade, the Alliance has worked tirelessly to advocate not only for the 1.8 million creators whose copyright interests we represent, but for the more than 5 million Americans who rely on copyright every day to earn a living. While much has changed and evolved during the past decade, the Alliance’s support and advocacy for creators is as strong as ever. Our organization was founded on the principle that, despite the diverse set of interests among the various types of creators we represent, one thing we all agree on is the need for a unified voice advocating on behalf of creators for improved copyright protection. As we look toward the future, it’s hard to predict what’s on the horizon for creators and the copyright community. But one thing is certain whatever copyright challenges arise, we will be there to support creators and to help protect their rights.”
