The other day I wrote about some recent frustrating experiences with intellectual property (mine) and the pain and/or inconvenience it can bring when someone either uses something without permission or takes credit for your work.
I wanted to follow that up with a couple of positive experiences.
The first was when I was asked about including some of my photos that I had released as iPad background in an Apple related magazine from France. The deal was struck and as you might have seen at the top of this post, I've got a copy of the magazine to prove it.
The second involves the author of the book I mentioned in my previous post, Stephen H. King. He decided to self-publish and we arranged for him to continue to use the "Ares" piece. Personally, I feel he did a much better job with the cover than his old publisher did.
If you think this might just be your thing, then click the book cover or click here to grab a copy. It's only $3.99.
So, you see? It's not all pain and frustration. Sometimes your stuff will show up places you never imagined and you'll meet new and interesting people.
