Disclosure: If I'm not making money through affiliate links on the post you're currently reading, it's an oversight on my part and will be corrected soon.

We’ve received a number of inquiries about whether passes to Affiliate Summit East 2010 can be upgraded. And the answer is yes.

The cost of upgrades is the difference in the price of your pass when you registered and the price of the higher level pass at the time of the upgrade.

Affiliate Summit Upgrades

There are four pass types: Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond. If you’re interested in seeing sessions at Affiliate Summit, Gold will get you into the Sunday sessions and Platinum provides access to all three days of sessions.

Diamond passes get access to all three days of sessions, plus DVDs of all recorded session videos.

Its a very scary time right now for affiliates. A lot of people are getting sued and on the other side people are having their hard work stolen and used by others for profit and not a clue what to do about it.

To make matters worse about the only information out there comes from bloggers or journalists who have ZERO real experience themselves in dealing with these issues.

Today Jeremy Schoemaker (@ShoeMoney) released an outstanding video detailing all of his legal battles throughout the last 5 years. Jeremy has defended himself against various companies over the years and has never lost a case. Mostly due to covering his a$$ making sure he was in full compliance each time.

Also in the video Jeremy takes you on the other side and shows you not only how to protect your own content but how to go after those who steal your work. Jeremy has pursued over 2 dozen people who have infringed on his trademarks and copyrights in the last year alone and in this video he walks you through each step of the process from initial contact to how to position yourself best to win jurisdiction hearings to winning damages, and even your attorneys fees.

At the end Jeremy also shares all of his policies and documents and gives them to you in downloadable PDF’s. Its great stuff.
