Copyright - Be in the Know!
Posted On: Wednesday, August 31, 2016 - 13:31 by Erica Brody

Why should you care about copyright?

As a future author, you may want to protect your work so that you're recognized for materials you have created and do not lose control of them. For some things you may not care, but as your career grows you will want recognition for the book, video, or journal article that you've created. Think about how you would feel if someone or some corporation took your work, mass distributed it, and you got no credit, or in some cases, no royalties for what you wrote or produced?
