Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

want to reproduce or your teenager's new home page. Copyright permissions specialist and newsletter publisher Besenjak has produced a well-crafted and highly readable "how-to" guide that addresses everyday needs of the copyright-consuming and -creating public. Her resource provides a solid introduction to copyright use and protection in a variety of contexts?printed word, visual art, performing arts, music, electronic?with directional pointers for the more complex questions. It shows how to determine whether something is protected as determined by what it is and when it was copyrighted and then how to begin tracking down the copyright owner(s) when the need arises. Besenjak's work comes complete with addresses, phone numbers, web sites, and samples of things like permissions letters and cease-and-desist letters. A useful addition for public libraries.?Johanna Johnson, Dallas P.L.

Format: Paperback
Given the the complex,and ambiguous nature of copyright, publishers and serious writers should a have number of copyright law books in their library. Besenjak rates highly as an understandable introduction. If you could read only one introductory book on copyright, read this one.

Format: Paperback
Don't mistake this book for one of those dry, dusty, `just the facts, ma'am' reference volumes. Cheryl Besenjak's delightfully written, fascinating guide to copyright outshines many other books that merely list rules and regulations when they address aspects of the law. Besenjak brings the beauty of copyright to life, providing plenty of examples. She draws you into her subject with a chatty, yet authoritative voice. This second edition includes an up-to-date look at copyright protection and copyright infringement as it relates to the Internet and other rapidly changing technologies. We recommend this book to anyone who deals with written matter or intellectual property. Our work is copyrighted. Is yours?

Besenjak's revised ed. is like the first--well-organized and concise. She takes a complex subject and makes it as clear and simple as possible with plenty of examples. She provides background history and explains the "whys" in everyday language. The book is current with the latest changes in the law, as well.
