The advancement of our society relies on the unfettered expression of words. So to defend them, the Dramatists Guild has formed the Dramatists Legal Defense Fund (DLDF).
The DLDF advocates on behalf of you, of theaters, schools, audiences, and all those in the culture at large who are confronting censorship on stages across America. As well, we are here to defend indigent artists who cannot defend themselves.
The DLDF’s mission includes educating about the importance to our society of an ever-expanding public domain and a proper administration of the copyright laws that serve to ensure it. We are here to inform theater professionals and students about the fair practices that have evolved in the industry in order to protect your dramatic works.
