Writing and publishing a book is an investment of time, money, and emotion. No one wants to give away rights by signing the wrong contract, or waste money by buying into a scam, or lose sleep by getting sued for defamation. On January 28th Helen Sedwick joined Bill Van Orsdel to discuss how to protect an author's literary rights and wallet. Watch this webinar and learn about:
Your copyright rights How to protect your rights Others' rights and how to avoid infringing on them
This webinar will feature guest speaker Helen Sedwick.
Writer and lawyer Helen Sedwick uses thirty years of experience to cut through the legalese and show writers how to set up their business, hire freelancers, protect their copyrights, understand publishing and POD contracts, spot scams, avoid infringement, steer clear of defamation and privacy claims, navigate social media regulations, collaborate with partners, and save on taxes.
Her goal is to keep writers out of court and at their desks writing new books.
Helen is a California attorney representing small business and entrepreneurs. Her recent release, Self-Publisher’s Legal Handbook, received a five-star review from ForeWords Reviews, calling it “one of the most valuable resources a self-publisher can own…Well-written and authoritative yet unhampered by legalese… Outstanding.”
To help authors learn the ins and outs of getting permission, she has recently released two ebooks: How to Use Eye-Catching Images without Paying a Fortune or a Lawyer and How to Use Memorable Lyrics Without Paying a Fortune or a Lawyer.
