Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Attorney Fishman's new handbook is a welcome addition to the copyright self-help arena. Written in an accessible and interesting style, it makes effective use of examples to clarify points and is full of good tips and useful information. Fishman concentrates on copyright protection for printed matter (e.g., books, articles, scripts, songs) and offers one of the better ``how to '' sections on copyright registration. His handbook reflects current changes in copyright law, fees, and Copyright Office phone numbers. Besides coverage of the usual copyright topics (copyright notice, infringement, fair use, works made for hire, transfer of copyright), Fishman also handles less obvious aspects (Should you put a copyright notice on material submitted to a publisher? How does ``rule of doubt'' work in copyright registration?). This is a good basic source for writers, publishers, researchers, and the public in general. Includes forms. Recommended for any collection. See also L. Ray Patterson and Stanley W. Lindberg's The Nature of Copy right, reviewed on p. 96.--Ed.-- Johanna Johnson, Dallas P.L.

    To Stephanie

    That's great! I want to know what happened to Janet! Nice comments for the bad guys, by the way. But, I concur with he person who said that you shouldn'tve posted it here. It's a fun read for us, but also very susceptible to plagirism. Next time, show it to your friends and family instead! Tell them to be honest. [; -- White Rabbit Clok !_! Yeah I know I sound like a hypocrit since I posted my own story, but I don't really care about it. Whenever I try to write more than a chapter, I get stuck on how to make what needs to happen happen. So I don't really care if mine gets gipped, I wouldn't finish it anyways. Not like I want you to, though....... Yes, I use a lot of commas.

    Awesome! I love it! The story is well developed, and left me wanting more. A few words were spelled incorrectly, but I do that all the time too. I am working on a story and will hopefully come out with it soon. One more thing - join Mountainclan at 'mountain cats'! Thanks! Please continue! ~ Fangstar of Mountainclan

    Mask[~•~] Great story, it really expresses the main characters emotions. The plot is pretty cool, though most of it is veiled to us. But that brings curiosity to the reader, so it's a good thing.

    It's great, but there are several grammar and spelling errors. Also, you may want to rethink putting this on here. This is the perfect place for someone to commit plagiarism. I know from experience… someone took my piece of work and claimed it for their own. ~*~

    It's good.

    My honest thought: A few mis-spelled words, but, hey, we all mis-spell words. Other than that it's great.
