Dear APAP Members and Colleagues,

In case you missed my note on Friday, I wanted to make sure you didn't miss this important two-part webinar series on livestreaming that starts today.

But before I share that information, I wanted to convey my disappointment with the recent news about larger companies using a loophole to secure funds from the Paycheck Protection Program. As follow-up legislation is being written and as Congress looks to add funding to the program, I urge you to contact your Congressional representatives , if you have not yet shared your story with them. You can also use these talking points .

If you have been thinking about how livestreaming may fit into your work, join APAP and the Alliance of Performing Arts Conferences for these two informative webinars:

  • Today, Tuesday, April 21 at 1 p.m. (EDT), join us for "Ask an Expert: The Legal Landscape of Livestreaming". This webinar will feature a discussion of the legal realities surrounding live streamed concerts, from copyright restrictions to contractual considerations, royalty recuperation and licensing agreements. Register now.

Looking for upcoming webinars, webinar replays and other resources? Visit APAP's COVID-19 resource page .

Lastly, to inspire each other, APAP is collecting your creative responses to the COVID-19 crisis to be shared on an APAP YouTube playlist. APAP members---please share your short video by sending it to us as a YouTube link at . No pitches or promotion, please.

We are here for you. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
