Conventions and the law. Conventions often take a fairly blasé approach to the law:
* Signing contracts without reading them carefully (or assuming that those provisions don't really apply to *us*)
* Failing to involve the police when the law is actually being broken
* Paying volunteers by the hour but at a sub-minimum wage (and, worse, not collecting taxes!) (Um, taxes in general!)
* Making inadvisable public statements

When conventions are big and visible and no longer a friendly part of an isolated subculture, it is not safe to ignore the law. This program deals issues like those noted, as well as ADA compliance, insurance, liability and libel, -- and (of course) the looming issues of privacy laws (US and overseas.) Ouch!

Workshops and Panels listed as “Streaming” will be in our online panel room. While the video will be trained on the panelists, audio will cover everyone. By attending this workshop or panel you agree to consent to having your voice and possibly your likeness broadcast online.
