This is a general reference for authors, artists, musicians, librarians, entrepreneurs and others interested in learning about copyright law. The material is an edited and expanded version of the relevant chapters from my Intellectual Property Law: A Practical Guide to Copyrights, Patents, Trademarks and Trade Secrets. It is designed as a a brief but informative reference for lay persons who need practical and accurate information that is easy to understand. The main text provides an orientation to the relevant law and the process, advisability and cost of registering copyrights with the U.S. Copyright Office.
