Copyright or copywrite?

Blocks of textWriting is always ‘writing’, yet it is amazing how many times I get asked to do some ‘copyrighting’ or asked ‘who owns the copywrite?’ So here’s a quick explanation of these common terms…

 copyright – protection of materials (e.g. articles, books, songs, photos, designs) by giving only the owner the right to copy the materials

copywrite – the act of writing text for a brochure, article, website, ad, etc (copy being a common term for the text in these items)

So I own the copyright of entries in this blog and I can call myself a professional copywriter.

Protecting your business

I just found this great blog post about protecting your business. I’ve read about doing back ups many times, and even have back up systems in place :), but I haven’t thought about all of the insurance issues Michelle mentions in her post.

And having our power go on and off for the last twelve hours (I have literally started this post three times to have it stop every time. This time I am saving after every sentence, lol!) I am more conscious of the possibility of having problems – it doesn’t have to be a bush fire or cyclone to destroy your business.

I’m not sure about the tax situation here – she is writing about the USA so it may be a little different here of course but it’s still an interesting thought – how would you spend any business insurance money? Would you pick up where you left off, or would you start something altogether new?
