The Boston Globe Freelancers Association exists to educate and support freelance writers, photographers and graphic artists who have been required to sign away past, present and future rights to their work for no compensation and forever in order to remain a contributor to the newspaper.

The BGFA is an information resource for freelancers resisting such unfair demands by the Boston Globe, its parent company, the New York Times, and other publishing enterprises. We are working for an equitable distribution of the revenues that come from publishing in traditional venues, on the Internet and in other new media.
