You might notice from the title of today’s episode that I have a thing for alliteration. That’s a copywriting technique, which is not what we’re talking about today.
I say that because I see people confuse the two terms all the time. Just a couple of weeks ago on Facebook, someone asked for copywriting advice, and was met with an earnest explanation on copyright law.
It happens. Worse, a lot of unemployable types have good questions about copyright, and unfortunately are met with laughably bad advice based on a misunderstanding or downright ignorance of copyright law.
Pro tip: Maybe don’t look to your Facebook friends for legal advice? Just saying.
I know it’s not the most exciting topic in the world, but it’s important to understand how copyright works, and how easy it is to infringe. I promise to make it quick and interesting.
Well, at least quick. Let’s do this!
