I pledge to
#respectcreators.

I will...

CREATORS CAN CHANGE OUR LIVES AND WE CAN CHANGE THEIRS TOO

Your choices around how you access creative content can have a real impact. Books, songs, plays, movies, art and even poems are powered by copyright.

Copyright helps take our Australian voices, our unique take on life, to the world.
You can show your respect for creators by pledging to pay for the creations you love, asking before you use other people’s creative work, crediting creators for their work and letting others know that it’s important to you. By showing your respect in this way, you can help an author, musician or artist to keep creating amazing and powerful works for us to enjoy.
