Unlimited Priorities Releases Pocket Copyright Guide Print Edition for Publishers
CAPE CORAL, Fla., July23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ Unlimited Priorities LLC , a firm specializing in support for small and medium-size companies in the information and publishing industries, announces the availability of the print version of its original eBook, Pocket Copyright Guide for Publishers, authored by Laura N. Gasaway, Paul B. Eaton Distinguished Professor of Law Emeritus, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
A basic knowledge of copyright law is crucial to working effectively with authors on such issues as transfers of copyright, terms of copyright, terminations and ownership. In addition, publishers must contract with authors and photographers and often other publishers to obtain permission for use of portions of copyrighted materials in new works. While larger publishers have in-house legal counsel or hired attorneys to offer advice on copyright matters, Pocket Copyright Guide for Publishers provides information vital to those smaller publishers unable afford such legal support.
Each chapter in Pocket Copyright Guide for Publishers addresses a specific topic including basics of copyright law; registration; assignments and transfers; granting and obtaining permission to reproduce copyrighted works; the use photographs, audiovisual works and other materials from websites; exceptions to copyright, such as fair use; licensing and collective rights societies; the digital environment; enforcement of copyright; international aspects of copyright; and industry trends.
