How Does Your Publisher Protect Your Copyright?

Posted on 07/30/2013 Evan Swensen

Will your publisher protect your copyright? At Publication Consultants, in four out of our five programs, we always copyright your work in your name, and register it with the Library of Congress, also in your name.

In only one of our publishing programs, where we buy a manuscript outright, do we then copyright the work in our company name. This is an option that’s the least popular of our programs, and we understand why. But we still offer it. It does happen that an author writes a book, but does not want to be involved with marketing or the book business or anything at all beyond the completed manuscript.

If we feel the work has merit, and fits into our marketing niches and plans, we will certainly consider this option if this is what the author wishes. But only if the author is clear upon all the contractual points, will we proceed with this, or any other plan.

All of our publishing plans are laid out in Bringing Your Book to Market, the free E-book you can download from our site. It gives you the overview of the five plans, including the consulting-only option, and lays out for you the steps involved in transforming a manuscript into a published book.

It will answer many of your questions or concerns. We want you to know these things even before you contact us the first time. We want to allay any fears you may have as to what our specific duties and responsibilities are to you, our author.

How does your publisher protect your copyright? Be certain it’s spelled out in plain language in your contract. If not, E-mail us right away.
