In October, 1989, when Rogers filed suit against both Koons and his principal gallery, the Sonnabend Gallery. He sought at least $375,000 in compensatory damages, and $2.5 million in punitive damages. Unfortunately Jeff koons had ignored the copyright notice on the postcard that he copied. Additionally, there was proof that he didn’t merely want to appropriate the photograph but to copy it, as per his instructions to the craftsmen who were constructing the works he specifically instructed them to do the work based exactly on the photograph. He also asked his craftsmen to exaggerate certain aspects of the puppies characteristics such as their noses in order to create something found between real life and animation. Koons’ defense was that the Rogers note card represented an accurate depiction for the couple and their puppies. He argued that he merely borrowed information from the work and not any expression. Koons sold the allegedly infringing works for $375,000. Art Rogers every incentive to pursue the issue to trial, it also made Koons a wonderfully inviting target. On December 10, 1990, Judge Charles Haight of the federal District Court in Manhattan granted summary judgment to the plaintiff. The jusge denied Koons’ claims of fair use. Koons was ordered to turn over all “infringing materials,” including a fourth edition of the sculpture, an artist’s proof. For a detailed account you could click on the following link where you would find an extensive narrative by James Traub about the Art Rogers vs. Jeff Koons legal case for a series titled, Subjective Reasoning. This is the link for this essay.
ALWAYS check the copyright of all the images you’re going to use!!!
Images and photos: To help the audience remember a person, place or thing you mention, you might use images or photos. People will understand that the images represent what you’re saying, so there is no need to verbally describe the images onscreen.
Graphs and infographics Keep graphs visually clear, even if the content is complex. Each graph should make only one point. No slide should support more than one point. Use as little text as possible -- if your audience is reading, they are not listening. Avoid using bullet points!!!. Consider putting different points on different slides.
Images as metaphors. images represent what you’re saying, so there is no need to verbally describe the images onscreen. Images help the audience remember a person, place or thing you mention. It can also put a ‘human face’ to your content.
Use simple graphs to communicate findings. If too much information is presented, very little will be remembered.

About how many delegates are you expecting at the conference and in

Will there be a list of delegates so that one can know beforehand who will
attend? Will this list include emails for possible follow-up queries?

How many slides for a 15 minute presentation?
● KISS: Keep it Short and
● ONE idea per slide
● ONE minute per slide
(A 15- to 20-minute
presentation would have about
20 slides maximum.)
What about Graphs and Infographics?
2-3 times a day
How? Best Practice tips
Keep the slides
simple. Every slide
should be understood
within 7 seconds
● Easy to read fonts
● NOT less than 18 points
● NO more than 2 fonts per
● Keep the fonts
Keep same colour
Use colours to
Take your “one-sentence” you
constructed earlier and
visualise it - to make a cover
image for your presentation
WRITE DOWN what visual
elements you would like to use
on each slide
So how do I make the best of the conference - BEFORE
during and after?
● CHECK the programme for your own session and to make choices about
who YOU want to listen to
● Are there conference blogs that might give you an idea of what sessions
● Is there someone you really want to MEET up with? (Make an
arrangement before the time)
● Is there a conference “back-channel” (e.g. a Twitter hashtag for the
conference or Facebook page to which you can CONTRIBUTE?
● Create and print off some “business cards” so that you can easily share
your CONTACT details
● Prepare your presentation and REHEARSE
So how do I make the best of the conference - DURING
during and after?
● UPLOAD your presentation to a shared space (e.g. Slideshare) - either
before or after your presentation
● ALERT others on social media that you have upload your presentation
● Team up with a “buddy” to record your session or write down the
questions that the audience posed to you
● TAKE NOTES of presentations that inspire you
● Sit at front and ASK A QUESTION or two, introducing yourself when
you ask the question
● TALK to the people next to you, at tea breaks, at the lunches, cocktail
parties - you never know where you might find synergies with other
● PRESENT clearly, not too fast and keep eye contact with your audience
○ Use your cellphone as timer to alert you of your timing!
So how do I make the best of the conference - AFTER
during and after?
● CONTACT those who may have asked you a question that you didn’t
● FOLLOW-UP with those who promised to send you reading lists, links,
● REVISIT your conference notes soon after the conference and make the
changes to your proposal, literature chapter, methodology, field work
etc. before you forget those inspirational moments
