The Copyright Zone – A legal guide for photographers and artists in the digital age
If you license or publish images, this guide is as indispensable as your camera.

The Copyright Zone: A Legal Guide For Photographers and Artists In The Digital Age, 2nd Edition provides specific information on the legal rights of photographers, illustrators, artists, covering intellectual property, copyright, and business concerns in an easy-to-read, accessible manner. This second edition covers: what is and isn’t copyrightable, copyright registration, fair use, model releases, contracts and invoices, pricing and negotiation, and much more.

Presented in a fun and easy to digest style, Jack Reznicki and Ed Greenberg, LLC help explain the need-to-know facts of the confusing world of legal jargon and technicalities through real world case studies, personal asides, and the clear writing style that has made their blog Thecopyrightzone.com and monthly column by the same name in Photoshop User magazine two industry favorites.

“I love these guys and their straightforward and straight talking way of explaining complicated and important issues to photographers and artists. This book is a must read for any serious creative person.”— Scott Kelby, President and CEO of KelbyOne
