Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As independent entrepreneurs, writers need to be aware of a wide variety of legal matters, including contracts with publishers and agents, copyright, obscenity, defamation, and invasion of privacy. DuBoff covers all these bases and then some, even including chapters on taxation, forms of business organization, and estate planning. His discussion incorporates many basic principles of law, as well as their applications to writers. This thorough and well-organized book will probably be best utilized as a reference handbook, since ``plain English'' in this case means serviceable textbook prose with barely a hint of verve or wit. Recommended for appropriate libraries. Jack Ray, Loyola/Notre Dame Lib., Baltimore
