New Media Rights will be speaking at the AHCJ (Association of Healthcare Journalists) annual meeting this year in a panel on Sunday, April 15 from 9 to 10:20
The Health Journalism 2018 conference will take place in Phoenix, AZ at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs resort.
Think Before You Sign: At one time or another we all sign contracts with worrisome clauses – we have to earn a living! We may also spend a lot of time chasing our dream publications, but what happens when you’ve finally broken in only to learn that the contract gives you the jitters? Paying attention to contracts and protecting oneself against litigation has never been more important than in today's media environment as contracts from websites to the glossies are evolving in ways that don’t benefit writers. For instance, contracts that are work-made-for-hire and also contain an indemnity clause can leave freelancers especially vulnerable. This panel will help you understand clauses in contracts that leave you legally and financially vulnerable, and will provide strategies to help you push back. Not all efforts to get a publisher to change clauses are met with success, and, in the end, you may decide it’s best to walk. This panel will provide the information you need to help decide what’s best for you.
In our new book, we focus on issues you may encounter from the inception of your business to the moment (that hopefully doesn’t happen) you get a nasty lawyer letter for the first time.
You’ll learn how to form your business, protect your intellectual property, and avoid problems when launching your project. Taking a few simple steps upfront to protect your business or project can save time and money down the road. Don't Panic has also been used in undergraduate & graduate classes nationwide to teach business and legal concepts to non-lawyers. Professors can request a FREE evaluation copy
FINALLY, CLEAR ANSWERS FOR LEGAL AND BUSINESS QUESTIONS WRITTEN BY LAWYERS AND DESIGNED FOR CREATIVES
After 10 years of advising creators and entrepreneurs, we’ve kept hearing about the same unsolved issue from our clients...
Creatives want to learn the legal and business rules they need to grow and protect their businesses. BUT they don’t have the resources to purchase 10 different books, read 100 different conflicting blog posts written by non-lawyers, and then spend $1,000 hiring an expensive lawyer to summarize them all before they’re understandable and usable.
That’s why we‘ve created our Resource Library. These checklists, best practice guides, and videos are made specifically for creative entrepreneurs who want the right strategies -- laid out in the right order -- to legally protect and thoughtfully grow their businesses.
We realized there needs to be an affordable and accurate place to find best practice guides written by lawyers but designed to be implemented by creators.
We are supporting the Library with ongoing updates -- which means you get new, actionable content for as long as you remain a member.
You can directly suggest new additions for the topics we’ll add. YOU as members, dictate what is added to the library based on what YOU need the most.
