Product Description

The Copyright Handbook solves the most common problem for writers: how to obtain maximum copyright protection for original work. You’ll learn everything you need to know from how to register your copyright to dealing with infringers to understanding the “fair use” rule and even how to transfer your copyright. This new edition is completely updated to provide the latest case law and copyright regulations, including works created for the Internet, such as blogs and new U.S. Copyright Office electronic filing procedures.

"For anyone who creates written works...The Copyright Handbook is as essential as a dictionary. " -Business Life

"The Copyright Handbook... has become a standard work on the subject." -Bob Schwabach, Syndicated Columnist
