Textbook copyrights and trademarks
I am done with the first draft of my finance textbook, that I am self-publishing. I am making it available for sale only to my students in the fall, with a proper launch next year after i incorporate feedback. The book will be in physical copy.
I am working on the copyright page. Are there any specific disclaimers (or any other legal clauses) that I should include? Are there any "risks" to writing a textbook that I should try to mitigate?
Trademarks: What should I trademark - the book title, the byline, the name of the publishing house (which i made up/ "founded"), author's name? Or, all of these?
I care both about people reusing my material, as well as people passing off their own material as mine, if my work somehow gets brand recognition...
Anything else, last minute?
