FRAPA defends free expression and the right to fair trade
The board of FRAPA has added a new article to the FRAPA Code of Conduct. The requisite for FRAPA adding this statement to the Code of Conduct must be seen in the context of the accelerated increase of trouble spots and political conflicts worldwide that seems to affect the international media industry and therefore the international format industry as well.
In the 15 years since the foundation of FRAPA the appeal for the right of free expression has never been so relevant as at this very moment. We appeal to our members to refrain from the injection of politics into our creative business and to avoid condemnation of creative concepts for ethnical, religious, minority, gender or racial reasons.
NEW ARTICLE FRAPA CODE OF CONDUCT
FRAPA believes in and fights for the protection and recognition of formats worldwide. As a global organization it represents the international community of format creators, distributors and producers and, as such, believes passionately in the principles of freedom of expression and the right to fair trade. All persons associated with the creation, production and distribution of formats should have the right to be heard without fear of political interference or injection. The opportunity to exercise these basic creative rights is to be enforced regardless of ethnicity, religious beliefs, political affiliation, race or gender. We appeal to our members to respect one another’s right for free expression.
