Written for creative people like you, this book will help you better understand how to protect your work at a time when your creative projects are especially vulnerable to copying and theft!
Copyright for Creatives is a practical, real-world-oriented look at how copyright law impacts real-life, everyday creative people, written with them in mind. It’s designed to specifically address the concerns, challenges, and copyright interests of makers: artists, crafters, dancers, writers, hobbyists, photographers, multimedia content creators, musicians, and more—all sorts of creative people who create things.
The book provides common-sense guidance that can be quickly applied by creative individuals to ensure that their work is protected, and that they don’t violate other peoples’ intellectual property rights along the way.
