The Copyright Handbook: How to Protect & Use Writt&hellip by Stephen Fishman
There's no substitute for a good copyright attorney when you have a problem on your hands, but for the everyday business of securing and registering your work, you can't go wrong with this book. There's even a good chapter on the confusing field of cyberspace copyright, and international copyright treaties are given adequate due.
But the book either overreaches or doesn't do enough, depending on one's point of view. The title of this book explicitly states that the subject is written works.

For the Love of You ~ Candy Dulfer
For the Love of You ~ Candy Dulfer
I bought this CD only because I'm a huge fan of Candy Dulfer, and I bought it cheap from an auction site.

Fodor's CITYGUIDE Washington, D.C., 2nd Edition: T&hellip by Fodor's
If you're moving to the D.C. area, this is a wonderful guide to have around in the weeks up to and during your move. It focuses a little too much on D.C. proper, and not quite enough on the Northern Virginia or suburban Maryland areas. There are some minor errors scattered here and there that could have been easily checked and corrected. And not wrong, but irksome: on the beigish-yellow portions of map 13, the Yellow Metrorail line is all but invisible. Smart thinking, Fodor's.
But the sheer amount of useful information in this book is staggering. The maps are clear, the neighborhood descriptions put me right in the middle of the bustling crowds, and the places and activities… Read more
