The Budapest Affiliate Conference (BAC) is just around the corner running from the 7th to the 10th of October 2010.

With solid affiliate marketing sessions, seventy exhibitors, and parties second to none, this will be an affiliate event to remember.

Complete information is available on the BAC website at

This year's event expands on last year with even more educational opportunities. There are a pair of optional day-long training workshops on Thursday, October 7th (Workshop 1: Social Media Secrets For Your Business Workshop for Beginners and Workshop 2: Advanced Link Building & SEO Workshop). If you are interested in those workshops be sure to register in advance on the conference website - the conference itself is free for affiliates but there is a fee for these two workshops.

And during the event itself there are 25 educational presentations that are free for affiliates. Be sure to check out the conference schedule to see the complete agenda on the conference website.

I'll be one of the speakers and I plan to cover a topic that has been in the center of a lot of discussion at the GPWA - copyright and trademark law. Here is a synopsis of the talk I will be giving just to give you a flavor for the type of practical information you will be able to learn at the conference.

Intellectual Property: What iGaming Webmasters Need to Know

Every iGaming webmaster has intellectual property – ranging from domain and brand names to website content and infrastructure. And every webmaster needs to understand copyright and trademark rules in order to protect themselves and understand the boundaries between what is legal and what is not.

This presentation takes a pragmatic look at the law and focuses on real-life iGaming webmaster examples. You will come away understanding both your legal rights and your legal and ethical obligations. But, most importantly, you will also come away knowing how to act on them as an iGaming webmaster.
And if you are in Budapest, be sure to stop by the GPWA booth and say hello.

I look forward to seeing many of you there!
