DO YOU KNOW YOUR RIGHTS AS A WRITER?

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.
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.

In this second edition, the author includes updates and new information on:

  • 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
  • PLUS, new and revised forms in the Appendix and on CD!
