PlayRights issue April 2020

PlayRights Magazine has always been a privilege of membership in IPA, but after a while it makes sense to share the information, don’t you think? We thought it would be fun to dip into the archives and occasionally share an old issue of PlayRights from the past…sometimes the distant past! We hope you enjoy.
