Conference Rebroadcasting Policy 

Virtual Registrants Take Note!
As a virtual registrant, your access to the Conference Portal to view live and recorded sessions entitles only you - the paid registrant - to view those live-streamed or recorded sessions. Permitting others to watch live-streamed or recorded sessions, broadcasting or distributing the live-streamed sessions or recordings, and/or recording or copying any portions of the live streamed or recorded sessions, violates the terms of your conference registration and infringes copyright.  This policy also applies to in-person registrants viewing recorded sessions post-conference. Group registrations are available to accommodate group viewing.
