From the vault: Easy ways to avoid copyright problems with your slides & handouts

The Eloquent Woman

An event planner I know emailed me this week to ask about a speaker's upcoming event. If you're reprinting material published elsewhere, and it's protected by copyright, you likely need permission to reprint or reproduce it in full or in part. That goes for those cute cartoons you like to show, for many photographs or copyrighted infographics, and much more, including some video and audio files.

Copyright protection: Make sure no one changes your work. However, this is not the only way to protect your copyright: we’ll demonstrate other simple methods later in this article. You can protect your copyright in various ways. Furthermore, it may be a difficult task to email an EXE file, because anti-malware tools often automatically block executable files.

An Urgent Plea to YouTube

TJ Walker Interactive

During this time, I have scrupulously respected all copyright laws. I do have a theory as to what may be the source of the conflict, but it is only a working theory, given that no one at YouTube has ever emailed me any specific complaints about my videos or channel. At that time, I began receiving a copyright violation notice from YouTube on roughly 1 out of every 50 videos I posted claiming that I was in violation of NBC’s Tonight Show’s copyrighted content.

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

TJ Walker Interactive

Sure enough, YouTube was sending me emails claiming that I was violating the copyright of NBC’s Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Then challenges of Video. Even though I constantly hector people into shooting more talking head video instead of just writing text, it is true that creating video is more difficult than writing text. There are always a 1001 things that can go wrong.

Using cartoons in presentations: How to do it right

The Eloquent Woman

I like to hunt down novel or targeted cartoonists like Tom Fishburne of Marketoonist , who charges for presentation or website use but lets blogs share his cartoons at no charge, or John Atkinson's wry Wrong Hands cartoons (email him for licensing details). Drawing your own cartoons during a presentation is engaging, and avoids all the copyright issues. Too many speakers rely too much on cartoons in presentations--and often, the cartoon is funny but irrelevant to the topic.

On Promoting Books

http://delicious.com/akarrer/prospeaker

On Promoting Books Books do not sell themselves; people sell books. If your book fails to sell, you did not know your market. Review copies are the least expensive and most effective way to promote books. It is easier to promote one book twice than to write a new book. The secret to successful publishing is not to publish more and more books, but to effectively market those books already published. Bookstores are a lousy place to sell books. Tolerate bookstores, do not pursue them. The cover.

Be a writing whiz: market your articles

http://delicious.com/akarrer/prospeaker

But if you cant send out dozens of emails to prospective clients, or spend hours designing a website, what can you do to get people to hire you? Oftentimes, online writers rely so much on their email addresses and contact details that they forget to put their names down. Give only your professional email addresses, not your cute email addresses, such as teddybear@ilovechocolate.com.
