Back from the wonderful Pen to Press symposium, sponsored by Lawyers for the Creative Arts and The John Marshall Law School.
I learned the genius behind their great graphic is a fellow named Andrew. Isn’t this terrific?
Beyond that, the conference was full of interesting, inquiring minds, who left with their questions answered about self-publishing, contracts, copyright and several other practical matters. I saw lots of friends, and met many new people who share an interest in bringing their projects to light, with Release Your Writing to guide them.
So, have you thought about the copyright of your work? Sure, you own it the minute you commit your work to paper, but take the extra step to file the copyright with the government at http://www.copyright.gov.
Attorney Maureen Collins also explained patents, trademarks and registering your name, or your book’s name to officially protect your rights.
