We all want to be published, be it in a magazine, a book or even on a website. But it doesn’t mean when someone is interested in having us write or draw, we sign away all our rights to him/her. If you intend to publish your work sometime in the future or even make a movie out of it, it’s important you know your rights. There are different types of rights that you as a creator should know about and to protect your work.
Here are some useful links you should read up on:
- How to protect your writing
- Copyright 101
- A novice writer’s guide to rights
- Copyright | Poets & Writers
The above links also apply to aspiring illustrators who want to draw for a living. Pursuing your dream is one thing, protecting your dream is quite another. So do the right thing and read up on it. =3
