This week on JWGTB our producers discuss potential legislation in America and Australia that could affect freelancers of all disciplines, and why standardising payment terms could be good business for both clients and creatives. We also dip into the treacherous waters of pro-bono briefs for charities and NFP's and discuss best practices to engage creative partners.
