The Dramatists Guild Digital Rights Agreement

Friday, January 22, 2021 at 4:30pm

Ralph Sevush, executive director of Business Affairs; Aisha DeCoteau, Director of Business Affairs; Kristoffer Diaz, New Media Committee. An overview of the new digital rights agreement for writers, and how to navigate new media in the theater industry. In response to the pandemic, the DG created a New Media committee and promulgated articles and contracts to help their members weather this unprecedented time. Join us as we discuss this journey and why DG thinks that new media in theater is here to stay.

 

From Bob Ost, executive director of TRU: “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all TRU live events are being reformatted for virtual participation. We created the weekly Community Gatherings to both minimize isolation and share information within the community. Stay positive, test negative, be safe!” Videos of past Community Gatherings can also be viewed on TRU’s YouTube channel: youtube.com/channel/UC43rsChi4fA23dNLeloaF_A/.
