Thread: When a publisher goes out of business

    When a publisher goes out of business

    What is a writer's legal position in regard to a contract.
    If the publisher is not returning calls etc. and cannot be located, is one still bound by it?

    Re: When a publisher goes out of business

    That depends on a) what exactly the contract says, and b) what state you're in.

    Talk with a lawyer. There's no substitute. And get one who's familiar with publishing law -- it's a specialty.

    Yeah, it depends on the contract. Did you sign something yet, or is this hypothetical?
