Copyright and Contracts Webinar

At a Glance

  • Protect your work and ideas
  • Terminology and practices you won't find anywhere else
  • Properly handle royalties and other negotiations

Even if you're fairly business savvy, publishing contracts are a breed of their own. There are terminology and standard practices that are not found in other business deals. Even if you plan to have an agent or attorney review your contract, you should know what you're signing. In this seminar, we'll go over the must-need-to-know clauses, give you suggested language changes to make the agreement more writer friendly, and tell you what you probably can't change, so you'll know if you're getting the best deal. We will cover contracts for both articles and books. We'll also discuss how to protect your copyright, and how to be sure your use of others' work is permissible.

What you'll learn:

  • What Happens When You Don't Have a Contract
  • Protecting Your Copyright
  • Fair Use and Permissions
  • Grant of Rights
  • Warranties and Indemnities
  • Advances and Royalties
  • Subsidiary Rights
  • Options
