Can You Recommend A Legal Resource For Authors?

Print Friendly

Hi Angela,

I enjoyed your post on the importance of understanding the legal implications behind writing a book. I’ve put together one myself and had a lawyer lined up to review it (he’s a copyright lawyer) but he’s unavailable to take on the work now and I’m a little lost where to go.

Know that I will be filing for some copyrights, etc, but I’m chiefly concerned with what assurances, permissions or protections I have from naming other people and citing their work or quotes in my book. It’s a positive, nonfiction piece and I cite my sources, but I’m not sure what’s considered fair use or in bounds. Would like a legal expert to review and advise.

What kind of lawyer do I need and where would I find one?

Thanks!
