The Creative America Campaign is a coalition of entertainment organizations in United States.[1] The organization's goal is to combat content theft (commonly called piracy) and protect the benefits of the American entertainment industry.[2] Creative America refers to itself as a grassroots movement. However, it has been alternatively described as astroturfing, given the support of labor groups SAG-AFTRA, IATSE, and the Directors Guild of America and entertainment giants including CBS Corporation, NBCUniversal, The Walt Disney Company, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Viacom, and Time Warner .[3][4]

The organization endorsed the Stop Online Piracy Act and the PROTECT IP Act.[5]
