Legal Clinic for Writers Features Lawyer and Agent


Questions abound: How can I find a reputable agent? What copyright concerns should I have? Can you define "fair use"? Are there permissions issues related to my project?  When do I get a royalty check?

Eager to get published, and patiently enduring what can be an arduous process, many writers wade into the business of publishing without knowing what happens with the rights to their own intellectual property.  Writers, get your legal questions answered by two of the best professionals in the business.
