Copyright - Translation of my book

Post by Dale » Tue Feb 03, 2009 11:04 am

Hi all,
Just a quick question about Copyright - Both books I have published are Copywritten in my name only.
I have been approached by a foreign publisher that would like to translate my books and publish them in their country.
Is there an easy answer to whether or not I have the right to allow this - or must I go through the publisher of the books ?
Thanks for any help.

Dale, double check with your original publisher, but if you own the copyright, you should have the freedom to deal with anyone you'd like.
