  2. For Webcast Attendees, below are directions on how to test your ability to watch the Conference:
    If you are attending online, just log in to TheCorporateCounsel.net or CompensationStandards.com on the days of the Conference (or afterwards) to watch it live or by archive. Here's what you'll need to watch the video (or listen to audio only):
    1. To watch by video webcast, you will need at least a 56 kbps connection to the Internet; however, 100 kbps is preferable. For audio only, you will need at least a 28.8 kbps connection to the Internet.
    2. You will need one of the following two "players" to access the video webcast: click here to check whether you already have the Windows Media Player or RealPlayer, which also allows you to determine whether you have the proper connectivity or any potential firewall issues.
    3. If you don't have one of the players, you need the free Windows Media Player (download here) or the free RealPlayer (download here). Please note that after downloading the software, you must install it. Simply downloading the software will not allow access to the archive. Downloading and/or installing the software may require permission from your network administrator.
    4. Remember that you need to use your Conference ID/password to access the video webcast. Your ID/password for TheCorporateCounsel.net or CompensationStandards.com will not work to access the video webcast.

      If you still experience difficulty getting in, you may need to delete your "cookies" before you enter your Conference ID/password, as many of you have dropped a cookie with your ID/password for TheCorporateCounsel.net or CompensationStandards.com (so that you don't need to re-enter those every time you visit the site). By first deleting the cookies on your computer (which you can do by going to "Tools" on your browser, selecting "Internet Options" and click on "delete cookies"), you can then input the Conference ID/password.
    5. If you are still unable to access the archive, contact your IT department.


Course materials are now available. They will be handed out in DC and posted online, adjacent to the links you will use to access the video/audio.

We also gently remind you that only persons registered to attend are entitled to use an ID and password to access the Conference. In other words, it is illegal to share your ID and password with anyone else inside (or outside) your office - as well as a violation of the terms & conditions of attending the Conference. If you share your ID and password with someone that is not registered - you not only will lose access to the Conference, you also will not be entitled to a refund. If you feel the urge to share, you should upgrade your license now to accommodate more people - our HQ will apply any money you already spent on a license towards a larger one.

Unfortunately, we will be monitoring for this illegal activity. You might recall that a few years back, Legg Mason was hit with a $20 million dollar judgment because its employees were sharing IDs/passwords for an online service.
