Do AI solutions represent opportunities or threats to PR professionals?

We've posted content recently on the impact of AI on the profession of marketing. The response to this content on LinkedIn has been polarising. Many have viewed technologies like ChatGPT as a fad, others as a time saver, and others as career-ending technology. The truth is something entirely different.

Changes that will impact Public Relations practices in 2023

There have been seismic shifts in the media that will impact the effectiveness of PR Professionals and teams. Here are the trends to watch for 2023.

Riding the coattails of fame

Celebrities and entertainment increasingly drive news and editorial content. This presents many tourism brands and operators with an opportunity to increase their free media exposure.

Newsjacking PR strategies

A man hoisted high by the media as a ‘genius’ for more than a decade is now widely viewed as the ‘barbarian at the gates.

What journalists and the media need to publish your images

Many in the PR space need to understand copyright rules on the images, video, and audio content they provide to journalists and media representatives. They may provide visual and audio assets to the media in ways that guarantee journalists, and the press can never use them.

To complicate matters further, some countries and jurisdictions have much more stringent copyright and usage guidelines that limit media usage and open organisations up to legal exposure. While it is impossible to cover every jurisdiction in one article or provide definitive legal advice on the media use of your collection, we can provide some basic understanding to allow you to start considering the legal implications of how and what you provide to the media. For the sake of this article, we focus only on the Title 17 of the United States code.
