Book Publishing And Intellectual Property Theft by ayandee: 12:31pm On Feb 15, 2015
I was reading through a business blog and saw this post:

"I have several manuscripts for children's books, and whilst I have approached a major book publishing firm, I've still not submitted any of my manuscripts to them. The reason is that I don't know how to package my material to prevent intellectual property theft".

The above represents the fear of many new and aspiring authors. You've come up with what you consider a great work but you're afraid a publisher may reject your work and later turn around to use it without your authorisation.

The problem is even more serious in Nigeria where our intellectual property laws are not fully developed and the judicial system leaves much to be desired.

In this article, I'm going to share with you a few tips on how to reduce the risk of intellectual property theft both from the point of view of a lawyer and a book connoisseur. Visit www.bookconvo.com for details.

yea, i also experience that problem with the publishers in uyo. so i decided to start writing proposals 4 each book i wanted published. so no publisher would see my manuscript until we have an agreement.
do you know any publisher that pays royalties/commission?
