Spielwarenmesse Norimberga: autori e illustratori di giochi chiedono ai negozi online di indicare i loro nomi
Alla Spielwarenmesse di Norimberga di quest' anno, la SAZ e l' IO si sono presentati per la prima volta come partner della Spielwarenmesse nello SpieleCafé e hanno informato le loro organizzazioni e i loro interessi nell' industria dei giochi. L' attenzione si è concentrata sulla menzione spesso mancante degli autori nel commercio online:
We are the originators of games!
Game authors – the creators of the rules, the developers, the composers, the creative minds behind the games.
Illustrators – the creators of the design and of the images, they create individual characters and visualize the theme.
- Hello Amazon, myToys, Spiele Max, further online dealers and publishers:
Games also have authors and illustrators – so please name them!
- Hello German Bundestag:
Games are cultural property, just like books – therefore, 7% sales tax for games, and inclusion in the collection catalogue of the German National Library!
- Hello publishers:
Game authors and illustrators are your partners – without them, your fair booths would be pretty empty. Therefore, we demand appropriate remuneration and fair contracts from all publishers!
