Owen Atkinson is new ALCS Chief Exec

The Board of the Authors’ Licensing & Collecting Society (ALCS) have announced that Owen Atkinson is its new Chief Executive Officer.
“ALCS is a focused and hard working organisation and I look forward to working with both the Board and our excellent team of staff”, says Owen. “ ALCS’ aim is to promote and protect authors’ rights, ensuring that the voice of the writer is heard and that they receive fair remuneration for the vital role they play in the creative economy, at home and abroad. One of the immediate challenges we face is the development of an equitable licensing framework for the digital environment; we must safeguard the interests of writers, along with all other parties, in disseminating the written word in all its forms.”
