Some of the CCC international conference delegates give their views on the importance of protecting IP online:

 

  

  

  

 


The UK’s creative industries are world class and enjoyed by millions of people all over the world. From Harry Potter to Adele and Call of Duty to Spooks they are a success story with global impact that help promote Britain around the world. 

 

We have superb writers, directors, musicians, games developers, CGI experts and publishers that help the UK punch well above its weight as a creative nation and deliver real value to the UK economy.

 

This success is in jeopardy because illegal file-sharing costs jobs and damages UK businesses putting the future of the creative sector at risk.

 

1.3 million people in the UK work in the creative sector and many of those jobs are at risk because illegal file-sharing deprives businesses of up to 20% of their revenues every year.

 

The Creative Coalition Campaign (CCC) brings together business and unions to:

  • Ensure that jobs are protected;
  • Enable our creative industries to flourish in the future; and
  • Allow new and innovative legal online services to launch and compete in a fair market place.
