    We have collected some of the comments from the webinar viewers from the previous site. Here is one of them!

    I found this webinar to be very informative and well worth the cost. I will definitely be attending other webinars provided by David Hutchins.

    I’d like to thank David and eCPD for this very informative webinar. The subject of copyright is vast, but all main points were sufficiently covered. This knowledge will certainly be useful in daily work.
