Authors’ Rights and the Rights of Authors: Italian associations sign a common Manifesto
Authors’ Rights and the Rights of Authors: Italian associations sign a common Manifesto
10 May, 2023

An authors’ manifesto was signed by Strade, an Italian member-association of CEATL, the Italian illustrators’ association AI – Autori di immagini (https://www NULL.autoridimmagini NULL.it) and ICWA – Italian Children’s Writers Association (https://www NULL.icwa NULL.it). The manifesto was launched in December 2022 during the Rome book fair “Più libri più liberi”.

The document takes the lead from the modifications brought to the Italian authors’ rights law by the EU Directive 2019/790 to assert the rights that should be granted to all authors, starting from the right to a negotiated contract (as opposed to one imposed by publishers) that is legal and fair.
It is only a starting point for the three categories of authors behind it, as the three associations involved plan to continue and increase their cooperation, in order to act in concert and as a lobby.
