I sincerely apologize for missing the video highlight last week. Sometimes real life interferes with our WordPress interest.
This week I am featuring two videos that have to do with the legal aspects of blogging, social media, clients, copyrights, etc. This is something that I doubt a lot of people spend a lot of time thinking about (me!). I learned a lesson recently about live streaming video and all of the ramifications of not having permissions to use certain content.
The first video comes from WordCamp Udaipur 2017.
