Whether you are self-publishing or seeking traditional representation, all authors need to be aware of copyright laws, contracts and legal issues surrounding your intellectual property.
* How does Copyright work, and how can you protect your work from being plagiarized by someone else?
* Should you start your own business?
* How do you decipher the legalese of publisher contracts? Should you have your own contracts when contracting illustrators, editors etc for your self-published work?
* Can you write fan fiction or parodies of other peoples work without their permission?
