CreativeFuture was part of a joint statement issued today by creative industry groups voicing their opposition to the Federal Communications Commission’s Set-Top Box Proposal, which aims to unlock the set-top box and make it susceptible to third-party applications that facilitate piracy.
In addition to CreativeFuture, other groups lending their name to the joint statement included the American Federation of Musicians, Copyright Alliance, Directors Guild of America, International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Independent Film and Television Alliance, Motion Picture Association of America, and the Recording Industry Association of America, among others.
From the statement:
A diverse group of creative industry companies, advocacy groups, labor unions, associations, programmers, and individual creators are raising concerns about the Federal Communications Commission’s proposal to regulate the set top box market – and its potential impact on copyright and content creators’ ability to be compensated for their work.
