The law is of great significance to you as a writer. It can work to your advantage or to your disadvantage; it can help you or hinder you. The best way to ensure that you get the most out of the law is to know it.

With this book you will learn what rights you have as a writer and how to enjoy them; and what obligations you have and how to comply with them. You will discover how to avoid legal pitfalls; and, in the event that you find yourself in a legal entanglement, how best to remedy the situation.

Specifically, this book will show you:-

  • What copyright is and how the law protects an owner
  • How to preserve your copyright and avoid infringing that of others
  • How to avoid libellous writing and defend yourself from legal action should the need arise
  • What is required for a binding contract, and how to enter into and get out of one with your publisher
  • What are the usual basic clauses of a publishing contract, with examples
  • How to understand advances, royalties and rights
  • How to deal with your literary estate
  • What other legal issues may arise and how to manage them
With the help of this book you will become confident in your knowledge of the law as it applies to you - before, during and after publication.
