This accessible guide to copyright law is an introduction for authors, editors, publishers and all those working with online content: both words and pictures.
Packed with examples of real-life case law and interviews with publishing and legal professionals, this is a refreshingly practical approach to understanding this confusing but well-trodden topic.
While debunking many myths and common errors, the author tackles such essential issues as: what is copyright?
What should I know about it? How can I avoid legal issues associated with plagiarism, libel or infringing copyright?
What if my own copyright is infringed? How can I make more money out of my published books and articles?
How do I clear permission for quoting words and lyrics?
How do I best work alongside others in the publishing sector to avoid problems in future?
This is a companion guide to Copyright Law for Artists, Photographers and Designers.
