Protecting your IP with Joel Cranshaw

Every speaker has IP they need to protect. There is also, occasionally, a need to use IP with appropriate accreditation. Tonight Joel will discuss what it takes to protect your IP and answer your questions about IP use in speaking.

  • Can you use music or images found on the internet?
  • What do you do if someone is using your content without asking?
  • How would you define "fair use" of content?
