Literary Law Guide for Authors
Copyright, Trademark, and Contracts
in Plain Language

Second edition

Literary Law Guide for Authors is an indispensable tool for writers who want to understand the legal issues involved in the business of writing and how writers can protect their work.

Some of the topics this book covers include:

  • why the poor man's copyright is a MYTH!

  • how to use other people's words and work in your own, including song lyrics and photos
  • electronic rights and the Internet
  • reclaiming copyright
  • fair use, work-for-hire, permissions, and public domain
  • co-author, publishing and agency contracts
  • the value of trademarks to writers

The book includes an appendix of forms commonly used by writers, which are also available on the accompanying CD, and a complete glossary and index.

"... a wealth of valuable information in a concise, well-organized package. Don't sign a contract without it!"

-Jeffrey Bowen, President & Publisher, PubInsider.com

"... provides writers with a user-friendly reference that clearly presents the facts they need to know."
