I recently gave a talk on Electronic Rights and the Writer at the Pacific Northwest Writers Association 2012 Writers Conference. My handout from that talk is available as a free download on the resources page of my law firm website.
This handout provides a guide to the ever changing world of electronic rights for writers. Like many other businesses, the publishing market is moving away from physical distribution and increasingly towards electronic distribution through the Internet to computers, e-Book Readers, cell phones, iPads and other types of mobile electronic devices. In a way, this is the new wild west for writers. Because it is a market that is expanding rapidly and changing all the time, the rules regarding electronic rights are also changing all the time.
