Who owns the copyright?

Posted in FAQs

You do. It is that simple. And certainly so if you are the author.

If I am writing the book for you, the material is copyrighted as I go along, and upon completion, I sign the rights over to you.

If you write your own book, your work is copyrighted as you work. It remains your copyright.

The exception is the book I write for you that has so much independent research, a creative use of concepts and correlations that make it exceed the parameters of a work for hire, then I retain authorship selling you usage. This is the rare book indeed.

For 99% of the cases, you own the copyright.
