The time has finally arrived.
The culminating moment every author dreams of.
That day when you hit publish and present your book to the world for the first time.
Countless hours and energy have gone into the creation, development, and polishing of the most important creation of your life.
Months, perhaps years of frustrations and opposing emotions collide the instant submission confirmation flashes across the screen.
At long last your book is published, but have you done everything necessary to ensure you are legally protected?
Chances are, no.
Every creative thinking of presenting their work to the world should have a rudimentary understanding of copyright laws, fair use, and the slew of side angles with the ability to present issues for both author and publisher.
