A newly revised and updated edition of the indispensable desk reference for writers, publishers, agents, and anyone else with questions about copyright and publishing laws

What is a copyright? How often does it have to be renewed? How do you inherit it? How do you determine the copyright of a letter or an illustration? What defines “fair use”? How can you determine when something is in the “public domain”? How is material on the Internet copyrighted?

This newly revised and updated edition of Every Writer’s Guide to Copyright and Publishing Law answers these and other pertinent questions in clear, accessible language. Ellen M. Kozak, herself an author and a lawyer, covers matters such as publishing contracts, libel, privacy, electronic property, moral rights, “Son of Sam” laws, and product liability, among others. For anyone involved in the book business—writers, editors, publishers, agents, lawyers, and even critics or scholars with questions about intellectual property— this authoritative and accessible desk reference is truly indispensable.
