Coble is the chair of the House Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet, while Chu, ranking member of the subcommittee, represents millions in content investment by studios in her L.A. County District.
"The Congressional Creative Rights Caucus will serve to educate Members of Congress and the general public about the importance of preserving and protecting the rights of the creative community in the U.S.," Chu's office said in a statement. "American creators of motion pictures, music, software and other creative works rely on Congress to protect their copyrights, human rights, First Amendment rights and property rights."
"We welcome the creation of the Creative Rights Caucus, as a significant recognition of the importance of the creative community to American innovation, culture and the economy," said the Directors Guild of America in response to the formation of the new caucus. "The works created by DGA members -- the films, television shows and commercials seen by billions around the world - are the result of their unique creative vision, hard work, and dedication to storytelling."
