On Saturday morning, April 17th, there will be an Open Forum on the Future of Licensing. It is not often that our industry has the opportunity to bring together licensees and licensors – photo editors, researchers, publishers, stock agencies, photographers; et al. - for a moderated debate on the challenges currently facing our industry. Representative of PLUS (www.useplus.org) will also be on hand to give an update on what new steps they are taking to bring structure to this issue.
According to Jim Pickerell, Saturday’s Open forum session is a necessary meeting of the minds for the stock business. “This program is one of the main reasons I am attending ASPP’s Boston conference. I want my voice to be heard when it comes to discussing what the best new licensing models are for our industry.”
