Radio freelancers battle for copyright

by Rachel Sanders

In the two and a half years since I’ve been the editor of Story Board, I’ve posted all kinds of news and opinion pieces about negotiations and disputes over freelance contracts.

The contracts in question have come from a wide variety of media outlets — ranging from Canada Wide Media, to the Toronto Star, to TC Media. But none of them ever directly affected me.

With the way freelance contracts have been changing, though, it was bound to happen sometime.

This fall, Accessible Media Inc., a non-profit broadcaster that I’d been freelancing for, came to me with a new contract. Suddenly I was involved with a group of other radio freelancers in a negotiation over copyright and intellectual property.

You can read details about our contract stand-off in this post on Rabble.
