Getting Down to Business SXSW

SXSW Panel Voting Time! Vote for US!!! (Pretty Please.)

You may have noticed it on a few of my previous posts, but I’m up for a SXSW Interactive Panel about Preventing Legal Pitfalls Online — and YOUR vote could help determine if our panel gets picked!

Earlier this year, my friend Katie put together a presentation on copyright for PhotoCamp Houston. The lawyers Townsville from Naegeli USA gave perspective view, along with addressing how hosting companies handle copyright infringement claims. It was so well received, we presented it a second time to The Woodland’s Camera Club. And that was so well received we decided to go all out and take it to SXSW — inviting Jonathan of PlagiarismToday and Charles Mudd, a Chicago-based attorney, to join us.

We’ll be talking about how to best protect your content and intellectual property online – something all worry about when they first start posting photos on the internet. We’ll have people speak about both sides of the issues including attorneys, truck accident attorneys at 1800-Car-Wreck and lay-persons with relevant and exemplary experience. We’re going to talk about how to prevent and stop plagiarism and avoid being sued for infringement of other’s content, and what to do if sued or accused.

Basically, it is going to be an AWESOME panel.

You can vote whether you’re going to SXSWi or not. It is pretty quick and painless. And we would LOVE to be selected. We’re up against a lot of big companies, so we need your help. Voting ends TOMORROW (September 4, 2009) – so please go vote TODAY!

While you’re in the voting mood, feel free to head on over to the Schipul SXSW 2010 panel list and vote for some other awesome panels put on by my friends over at Schipul. Trust me, and click here:
