Can I Publish My Late Father’s Stories? Maybe, Maybe Not…

Print Friendly

I have a short story written by my late father. He was a talented writer and had many short stories he had written. I would like to submit one of his stories for publishing under my father’s name. I didn’t know if there would be any legal reason I would not be able to.

I AM NOT AN ATTORNEY AND THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE.

Did your father assign his copyrights to you in his will? If he did not, you will need to obtain permission from the person to whom he assigned his rights or property. You should to contact an attorney on this matter for additional advice.
