A Collective Voice for Literary Agencies
a collective voice for literary agencies
The AAA acts as a collective voice for literary agencies and their authors on public affairs to the government, media, and other sectors.
We cooperate with other industry organisations to lobby and debate on issues such as
copyright, diversity, and sustainability.
Member of the Alliance for Intellectual Property
The AAA has been keenly involved in campaigning for the protection and promotion of Intellectual Property as a member of the Alliance for Intellectual Property — a UK-based coalition of 19 organisations representing IP-rich businesses and creators who are vital to our economy.
We campaign to protect and value IP rights in the UK by ensuring there is a strong legislative and regulatory regime to protect them.
The AAA also works with a number of other industry bodies such as the Publishers’ Association, the Society of Authors, the Booksellers’ Association, and many more.
These initiatives focus on a range of projects and issues affecting the wider publishing industry, such as copyright protections, equality and inclusivity, and sustainability.
Our Recent Initiatives
The PA, BA and AAA join together for OpenBooks – a new initiative to reach the next generation of book industry talent. The Publishers Association, Bookseller’s Association and Association of Author’s Agents are proud to collaborate on the development of OpenBooks – a brand new series of free, accessible online events primarily targeting young talent from underrepresented backgrounds.
The Society of Authors has published an open letter, demanding that the San Francisco-based Internet Archive stop lending scanned copies of physical books online in the UK through its Open Library.
The AAA, jointly with The Society of Authors, Booksellers’ Association, and The Publishers’ Association, have today (7th December 2018) published an Industry-Wide Commitment to Professional Behaviour in Bookselling and Publishing.
