Literary Law Guide for Authors: Copyright, Trademark and Contracts in Plain Language
Writers, like other artists and creative people, are notorious for getting caught up in the process of creating, often at the expense of fully comprehending and appreciating the business side of writing. We want to create the next great work of fiction, the most referred to reference guide, the most profound poem, the most telling memoir, the wittiest article or short story or essay. To the writer, mastering the craft of writing in order to complete the manuscript and publish the work is often the sole objective. The book helps guide the non-expert through some of the basics of intellectual property law for writers.
