"Finally, a comprehensive, accessible book that the non-lawerly minded can turn to for guidance on how to protect and market one's creative work. The authors bring light and clarity to the often-arcane world of copyright and publishing. This book is highly recommended for legal practitioners, creative folk, and students of the law alike.
