This book provides essential information about copyright and trademark law. The text and illustrations teach authors how to protect their work and how to avoid common pitfalls associated with writing that may expose a writer to legal liability. This book breaks down complicated boilerplate language most commonly included in publishing contracts and analyzes the clauses from the author's perspective. The CD Rom contains valuable forms commonly used by authors, including forms to register copyrighted materials and to engage the services of artists and other independent contractors on a work-for-hire basis. Also included is a sample publishing contract form with commentary and a list of references to obtain supplementary information.
