This week I’m answering several questions about copyrighted images and using them in your books. These are questions that came from a blog reader about a book that’s she helping publish for a nonprofit.

I do digress at one point to tell a copyright story that just happened to me, and the video finishes with some advice about using images you find on the web.

If you have a question you’d like me to address next week, leave it in the comments. (If you can’t see the video, please reload or refresh the page.)

Discussed in this video:

  • Having more than one copyright notice on the copyright page
  • Recto and verso pages and how to tell one from the other
  • How copyright law protects content creators
  • Copyrighting images in a book
  • Do you need a copyright on every page?

Additional resources:

If you would like a more complete treatment of these topics, make sure you’re on my newsletter subscriber list. You’ll be the first to hear when I issue new resources and e-learning materials.

I’m working on an exciting course specifically designed for new self-publishers, but it’s only going to be offered to subscribers. If you’re interested, get on the list now.
