Get Answers to Your Copyright Questions
Whether you write for your livelihood or as a hobby, as a commodity or for the artistry alone, understanding copyright law ensures you can protect how your writing is used by others. And when you know your rights, you'll understand the copyright ownership rights of others and can avoid the threat of a lawsuit for infringing the work of someone else. But do a writer's copyrights change depending on whether they publish in a traditional fashion or online? Join Washington Lawyers for the Arts for a discussion on copyright law including ownership and control, infringement, and how the Internet affects writers' copyrights.
