About this Lawline.com Program
In Part II of this Two Part Series, intellectual property attorneys Sheila and Gerald Levine teach attorneys how to best represent their client authors and publishers when negotiating publishing contracts. This course will begin by highlighting the most important negotiating terms (including non-competition, next book option, revised editions and agency clauses).
