One of the big issues among genealogy lecturers in recent years has been the poor relations between conference audio taper, Repeat Performances and the speakrs it has taped. In my role as VP of the Genealogical Speakers Guild I heeard from several speakers about their concerns during the negotiations, which seem to have failed in the end. So I was interested in this message from Tom Terrific, a motivations speaker on this topic. Tom wrote,
“If you hire a video company to tape your presentation and create a demo tape, who owns the copyright and has the rights for the tapes and final product? It’s not an easy question to answer. Read this article in Digital Juice magazine to find the answer and what steps you as the speaker need to take.”
So, take a look and tell me what you think?
