  20. 3 Key Practice Areas Creative Worldbuilding • What’s the tone/setting of the world (genre, mythology, attributes, etc.)? • How high is the hurdle for contributors? • How dependent on contributions are you? • Is it a single or multi-platform experience? • What mediums will be used internally?
  21. 3 Key Practice Areas Creative Inviting • How will you scope participation (limitations)? • What mediums can contributors use? • How will invitations be designed (entry points)?
  22. 3 Key Practice Areas Operational Submissions / Systems / Marketing • What technologies/resources are necessary? • What is the process for submissions? • What is the content workflow process? • What is the process for payments (if applicable)? • How will you scale based on submissions? • How will you identify, connect and engage audiences?
  23. 3 Key Practice Areas Legal Intellectual Property / Money • Assignment of rights for accepted contributions? • Can audiences remix each other’s contributions? • Are there limitations on trademarks? • Under what conditions will contributors be paid? • Any additive licensing (e.g., Creative Commons)? • Do you have a rights management system? • Do you have a revenue payment system?
