View Full Version : Website copyright question

With the help of a designer who's not a writer, I'm creating a website. I'd like to post a few of my past published articles on the site, as well as a teaser from my WIP. I own the copyright on these pieces.

I'd like site visitors to know that articles are available to reprint with permission, but *only* with permission. Is there standard language for this? Is this understood, or do I need to say something? Do I advertise my ignorance by asking this question in the first place?

I'll also have photos, video and audio on the site. Any clues as to how to protect these?

Hi Petrea,
I'm going to ask a friend of mine to come on and answer your question. Her name is Amanda Brice (http://www.amandabrice.com). She's an author and a lawyer with specific expertise in copyright law. She's going to be teaching a class on the topic next fall through AuthorMBA (http://www.authormba.com).

It's a great question. I'd like to know the answer, too! :)

If you don't want to wait until then, she's also teaching on this topic the first couple of weeks of May this year: http://www.neorwa.com - click on workshops to see details (I'm the online workshop coordinator for NEORWA).

She's really smart!! :D *waves hi to Amanda*

Hey cool, Amanda's FAMOUS now!

She's a rockin' sweet lady. I love it when I stumble upon a Diva in passing.
