Copyright can be sexy

Cling on to your copyright and write about oral sex were the twin conclusions reached by a seminar run by the Guild of Health Writers aimed at helping freelances earn more money.

One participant revealed that she had written an article about oral sex for a fee of £450 and retained her copyright almost as a matter of chance. In its various manifestations, the piece went on to earn her over £5000.

All 30 people present clamoured to be told how they could find out more. No, I have no idea what they knew about that. About copyright.
