What copyright law protects….and doesn’t

No writers like to see their hard work or creativity copied by others – or to be accused of copying. Fortunately, The Copyright Handbook provides everything you need to protect yourself! Find information and forms to help you:

register your work
maximize copyright protection
transfer ownership of copyright
avoid infringement
deal with infringers
understand the “fair use” rule
get permission to use copyrighted work
profit from your copyright

This edition is updated to provide the latest copyright regulations, forms and rules for filing a copyright application.Copyright law is a complex field, and it’s crucial for writers to understand what’s entailed. Stephen Fishman covers what a copyright is, how it’s created and protected, limitations and transfer of ownership, how long it lasts, and what copyright infringement is all about. There are chapters on copyright registration, copyright notice, and how to deal with errors or omissions. Fishman also wades into the issues of derivative works and compilations, works for hire, and jointly authored works. He also tackles the confusion of copyrights in the online world of electronic publishing; the book is worth its price for this chapter alone. The appendix contains a variety of sample forms and blank forms and a PC-formatted disk of the same material.

Understanding a subject that is not familiar usually requires a lot of grunt work, fortunately this book provides enough information to give you a detailed overview of what to do and what not to do. It is well-written, easy to understand and informative, and lays out every area…

Every Writer Should Own and Read This Book — Now When I started out as a writer in 1967 I signed away all of my writes for 5 cents a word. The magazine was sharp enough to take away all of my rights and I was naive enough to let them. I blame it on being barely out of my teens and not knowing my options. But today there’s no excuse for that.
