Legal Issues Rescheduled For February

Unfortunately ice and snow canceled Book Publishers Northwest’s January 19 meeting. But our January and February speakers kindly agreed to new dates. We will cover legal issues in February and author branding later in the year.  And keep our fingers crossed that we have no more blizzards!

At the February 16 meeting, attorney Gary Marshall will overview of copyright and contract law for writers and publishers, including an update on E-publishing legal issues. Until then, you can check his website (listed below) for resources for publishers.

The February 16 meeting takes place at Good Shepherd Center, Room 202, 4649 Sunnyside Avenue North,  Seattle, WA.  All are welcome!

  1. I’ll be out of town on business for January, but will try to make the next meeting. Now that I’m on the IBPA Board of Directors, I would like to report on the work of the Board if BPNW is interested. In particular, I’d like to share info on member benefits.

    We hope to see all the folks who couldn’t make January at the Feb. meeting. And we have scheduled plenty of time after the speaker for updates on IBPA and more.
