Written specifically for photographers and image-makers who license or publish imagery, the second edition of The Copyright Zone: A Legal Guide for Photographers and Artists in the Digital Age from Focal Press covers intellectual property, copyright, and business-related concerns on the legal rights of photographers, illustrators, and digital artists. Authored by Ed Greenberg and Jack Reznicki, this digest-styled guide focuses on issues such as what is and isn't copyright-able, copyright registration, fair use, model releases, contracts, invoices, pricing, negotiating, and more, as well as how to navigate the confusing world of legal jargon and complex technicalities. The topics covered are backed up using real-world case studies, personal asides, and an easy-to-understand writing style that helps to making the learning process more effective and enjoyable.
