Authors Alliance Publishes 2018 Annual Report
From the Authors Alliance Annual Report:
Helping authors to share creations broadly takes many forms. It means empowering you to negotiate for author-friendly variations to your contract terms, especially when those terms may affect the long-term availability of your works. It means lending our support to a position statement on controlled digital lending, an interpretation of copyright law that can help you reach readers, particularly if your books are out of print or commercially unavailable. It means illuminating the role that authors play in making digital works more widely accessible to people with disabilities. We are delighted to share details about these initiatives—and many more—in this annual report. As we look ahead to our fifth year of serving authors, we are thrilled to have received a two-year $500,000 grant from Arcadia—a charitable fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin—to enable us to develop institution-facing materials that will expand our ability to reach and support authors. We are thankful to Arcadia for its support of this project.
