A fast talking and fun overview of Australian copyright, the ins and outs of a standard publishing contract, how and what to negotiate when dealing with a publisher, some of the sneaky traps to watch out for, and different approaches when dealing with traditional vs alternative publishing models, US vs Australian publishers, or what should be in a literary agency contract.

You will learn:

  • what copyright is and what it protects
  • When you need to get permission to use someone else’s works
  • standard royalty structures in a publishing contract
  • what a fair reversion clause is and why you should care about it
  • what subsidiary rights are and why they are important
