Working for free/paying to work: Contests, crowdsourcing, and publishing platforms

The ways in which creators are asked to work for free abound, from contests to hiring homework to publishing and crowdsourcing platforms. What do we need to look out for, and how can we push back against these practices?

Moderator:
Michael Capobianco (Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America)

Panelists:
Rafael Espinal (Freelancers Union)
Francesca Khalifa (Music Workers Alliance)
Rona Siddiqui (Dramatists Guild)
Johnathon Strebly (International Council of Design)

PANEL 2 - https://vimeo.com/716897856

Contracts and terms: The unethical, the unenforceable, and the unavoidable

Creative professionals are often bound by client-supplied contracts, and publishing platforms require standardized contracts. Be aware of terms such as work-made-for-hire language, wage skimming, and non-compete clauses.

Moderator:
Umair Kazi (Authors Guild)

Panelists:
Daniel Abraham (Graphic Artists Guild)
Thomas Maddrey (American Society of Media Photographers)
Ralph Sevush (Dramatists Guild)

PANEL 3 - https://vimeo.com/716912740

Copyrights and rights grabs: How your work is taken, and how you can protect your rights

Infringers utilize ingenious ways to steal our work, while companies openly engage in rights grabs. What can we do individually, and what can we do collectively to advocate for policy changes, to protect ourselves against rights grabs?

Moderator:
Thomas Maddrey (American Society of Media Photographers)

Panelists:
Rebecca Blake (Graphic Artists Guild)
Edward Hasbrouck (National Writers Union)
Stephen Doniger (American Photographic Artists)
