The DG Copyright Management Company is an estate planning consultancy and intellectual property management program created by the Dramatists Guild of America to oversee the stewardship of your plays, songs and musicals, and, in so doing, protecting your authorial intent and celebrating your career and artistic legacy.
The DG©M manages the works bequeathed to the Dramatists Guild, or one of its affiliated non-profit sister organizations, allowing your fellow writers on the Guild’s governing council to act as your proxy whenever authorial approvals are required. In this way, you ensure that dramatists are the ones making the artistic decisions about your work forever after. The DG©M also promotes the names and careers of the writers whose works it manages, so your legacy is celebrated along with your work.
In addition, The DG©M provides you with a unique philanthropic opportunity, with the revenues generated by your properties (whether that includes your entire literary and musical output or a single play, musical, or song) going to support the mission of the Guild and the generations of playwrights, librettists, lyricists and composers to come. You can even direct a portion of the proceeds to go to other beneficiaries, if that better serves your estate planning goals.
This functionality is part of suite of resources designed to help playwrights, composers, lyricists and librettists.
