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.
