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.
“If you’re a creative person, you need to read this book!”
