BATW member Edward Hasbrouck attended the biennial National Writers Union (NWU) Delegate Assembly in Detroit on June 24-26, as one of the delegates representing the NWU’s SF Bay Area Chapter. Edward was re-elected as co-chair of the NWU’s Book Division (www.nwubook.org) for the next two years.
Edward also met with the White House Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator, on behalf of the NWU, to discuss writers’ concerns about their difficulties in enforcing their rights against publishers and distributors of unauthorized e-books.
Additionally, he has also been appointed to represent the NWU at the International Federation of Reproduction Rights Organisations (www.ifrro.org) at the 2011 IFRRO World Congress in Ljubljana, Slovenia, Oct. 24-27.
Edward encourages BATW members to also join the NWU as a complementary organization to BATW.
