FreedomWorks Joins Re:Create Coalition

Washington, D.C. – The FreedomWorks Foundation, a national conservative grassroots organization that supports free markets and individual liberty, has joined as the newest member of the Re:Create Coalition. The FreedomWorks Foundation will work with other coalition members to ensure that copyright laws are clear, simple and transparent, while also fostering creativity, fair use, and innovation.

“FreedomWorks has long been an advocate of Internet freedom and technological innovation. Copyright plays an important role in fostering that innovation. We are excited to join forces with the Re:Create coalition. We will be working to ensure our nation’s copyright laws promote innovation and economic growth. Improperly applied copyright poses a serious threat to innovation and serves to the protect gatekeepers rather than consumers,” said Wayne Brough, Chief Economist and Vice President of Research at FreedomWorks.

“It is imperative that copyright reform strikes the right balance to ensure that we protect, foster and promote innovation and creativity.  FreedomWorks and their grassroots network will be important and active members as Re:Create works to educate others about the need for clear laws that support creativity, innovation and the economic opportunity that comes with it,” said Tina Pelkey, spokesperson for Re:Create.

The following groups are also members of the Re:Create Coalition: American Library Association, Association of Research Libraries, Center for Democracy & Technology, Computer and Communications Industry Association, Consumer Electronics Association, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Media Democracy Fund, New America’s Open Technology Institute, Organization for Transformative Works, Public Knowledge and R Street Institute.
