Expochat topic for Wednesday, January 18th, 3pm ET
Chat archive is available for download as a PDF: (chat gets started on page 4) Content—Who-Owns-It
Are the presentations proprietary to the organizer or the speaker? What’s important to the organizer and the speaker when negotiating contracts?
This topic was inspired by two articles which we encourage you to read before our chat on Wednesday, January 18th at 3pm ET. The first article talks about speakers wanting to retain some of their ownership of the content they present. The second article supports an open source theory on the presenter’s content.
1. Negotiating Content Ownership, BizBash.com Nov/December 2011(page 75):
2. Content Worth Spreading (about TED):
- Do you have a policy regarding content from your speakers? If so, what is it?
- If you pay a speaker vs a “volunteer” does that significantly change the rules?
- What do you think of the TED open source model?
- Do you allow “free” speakers to change your speaker contract? How much leeway?
- If you are making money on speakers content, do you/should you share revenue?
- Is it ok to “re-purpose” speakers content into other packages without their permission? Why?
