How do I ascertain whether a vintage novel is in the public domain?

Is the trademark I've invented for my production company available?

What about copyright and trademark rights overseas? If I upload my film to YouTube, do I give up any rights?

Clear and thorough, this plain-spoken and practical guide is essential for anyone seeking to navigate the rapidly changing media environment of today.
