Joanna Penn has noticed an interesting contrast in the writing world.

Authors work to make their fictional language as precise as possible … but use business terms carelessly (her words, not ours).

That’s most likely due to an incomplete understanding of licensing, copyright, and other legal issues — a dangerous problem, as anyone familiar with Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s blog knows.

So, to help correct this pattern, Penn has a primer on intellectual property rights and explanations of key terms.

She cautions that she’s not an attorney, but a blogger who is — Passive Guy — has already shared her post with a hearty endorsement and emphasis on what he thinks are the absolute most critical points.
