-opportunities for original Flash work in today’s anxious marketplace?
Independent creator/developer Franke James doesn’t just talk about creating and marketing original content, she’s doing it! Hear about her latest project, on that has sponsors lining up.
-There are a lot of questions about what you should do to balance the need to get your work out there with the need to protect it. Lawyer Trever Dencott doesn’t just talk copyright, he helps people license games and original content. Everything you need to know about using other people’s work and ho to protect your own (or not, you decide!)
