Intellectual property attorney Howard Zaharoff was interviewed for the new Authors Alliance guide, Understanding and Negotiating Book Publication Contracts. As publication contracts can contain complex contract language and copyright law, the guide aims to assist authors in reviewing these contracts by identifying clauses that frequently appear in contracts, explaining what the terms mean, and presenting strategies for negotiating “author-friendly” versions of these clauses. Howard’s insights can be found on pages 73 and 219.
Authors Alliance promotes authorship for the public good by supporting authors who write to be read. They provide information and tools designed to help authors better understand and manage key legal, technological, and institutional aspects of authorship in the digital age.
