Rights and Copyright

This is an excellent and very clear, understandable explanation of what copyright is, and how that is different from the publishing rights that you grant a publisher when you contract with them. It also explains reversion of rights, and things to look for in publishing contracts. Common sense advice all authors should heed. I'm recommending this article to all the authors, old and new.
