Essential Information on Copyright

Hello again, is it possible that another week has gone by? Amazing! But this means another creative writing tip, so here goes:

If you have used quotations in your story, either from Scripture or other sources, you need to make sure that you:

  • Quote your source exactly, including correct punctuation
  • Obtain permission to use the quotation
  • Attribute the work correctly

copyright infringement

Why is this important? Because anyone who has created a work automatically holds the copyright, whether it’s a painting, a book, a poem, a song, a short story, a piece of music, a booklet or any other creative piece of work. So it’s important that you follow the rules, or you could find yourself on the wrong side of the law!

Trust that helps! Have you heard of anyone who has broken the rules? Do you have any advice for others? Any comments, please don’t hesitate to write them here on the blog, or on our facebook page. 🙂
