I’m Presenting at Podcast Movement 2016

I’m coming to Chicago for Podcast Movement

Just a quick announcement that I’ll be speaking at the Podcast Movement conference in Chicago next week.

FACE-Book-Flag-version-with-dirt

Q & A session on legal and business issues for podcasters.

As I predicted a few years ago, Podcasting is starting to come into its own as a medium, and podcasters are now becoming targets for lawsuits, regulation, etc.

I’ll be talking about some troubling cases I’ve been involved in, and some others I’ve been following.

We’ll be covering issues like:

  • Releases
  • Contracts
  • Copyrights
  • Trademarks
  • Trade Secrets
  • Freedom of Speech and Press
  • Forming Corporations and LLCs
  • Insurance
  • Rights of Privacy
  • Rights of Publicity
  • Defamation
  • Podcasting as Journalism
  • Reporter’s Shield Laws

If you’re going to be in Chicago and want to meet up, drop me a note.  I’d love to meet you!

My presentation will be  Thursday, June 7, 2016 at 2pm.

Tickets are almost sold out, so if you’re considering attending Podcast Movement 2016, now is the time to act!

Cant Make it?  Don’t fret.

You can find much of this knowledge and information in my ebook, The Podcast, Blog & New Media Producer’s Legal Survival Guide

And, even if you’re not ready for the whole book, you absolutely MUST get this:

FREE PODCAST GUEST RELEASE form.  Without it, you could be very exposed to some major trouble.
