On Your Terms: Managing Your Rights to Keep Your Work Available
Be Empowered to Shape Your Own Contracts!

Authors of all kinds are routinely asked to sign contracts that carve up their copyrights and determine where, how, and by whom their works can be published. This panel of copyright attorneys examines some of the ways authors can ensure that these agreements don't end up standing between their work and their audience. Join us and we'll work on demystifying embargoes, licenses, negotiations, rights reversions, and terminations of transfers.
