9780137395255: The Publishing Law Handbook

This comprehensive guide offers publishing executives, counsel, editors, and writers a complete analysis of key legal issues they are likely to face day-to-day and includes over 35 detailed checklists. It is particularly valuable for its insightful coverage of recent issues and new developments in such hot areas as the effects of GATT and NAFTA, audio rights, electronic publishing, and recent fair use decisions.

Volume I of The Publishing Law Handbook is devoted to writer/publisher and publisher/ public relations issues. The authors take you through contract issues and analyze problems commonly encountered in negotiating royalties, advances, options, writer's warranty, and subsidiary rights splits.

Volume II analyzes intellectual property issues, including trademark and copyright law and filing procedures. The text is replete with case law examples illustrating how the incorporation of trademarks, the juxtaposition of illustrations and text, or a careless inaccuracy in quotations have exposed publishers to lawsuits and liability, as well as how a defensive strategy can strengthen the publisher's position.
