Warren Dranit sq smContent is everywhere but confusion still reigns about who can use it and when.  From websites to your mailbox, you are inundated with content from others.  The content is wide ranging including images, video, music, brochures and software. Some stuff you are actually looking for.  Other stuff is just getting pushed to you.

In this lunchtime presentation, we will discuss:

• Some fundamental guidelines for assessing when it is lawful for you to use content

• Some thoughts about how to obtain permission when it’s not.

• What if it’s your content that is being used without permission?

You have questions?  We hope to give you answers (that you can use).
