    Copyright and Intellectual Property 101 for Writers with Attorney Brad Frazer

    Copyright and Intellectual Property 101 for Writers with Attorney Brad Frazer

    In this episode, I talk with copyright and intellectual property attorney and novelist Brad Frazer. We cover his professional journey (which is fascinating!), the basics of copyright and intellectual property for writers, what constitutes “fair use” and when to attribute a source, and at what point an author needs to retain an attorney for their book. There are so many gems in this episode, and a big one is this: copyright is a noun not a verb. Curious to learn more? Listen in!

Smart, practical, and easy listening!

Besides her podcast having accessible, practical knowledge that can be easily applied to my life, I enjoy listening to Stacy’s insights~ she is real, relatable, genuine, and someone I wish I could sit down with over a cup of coffee and bounce ideas off of! Be sure to have paper and pen in hand if you want tips that work for creating a better life and career. (Psst! I’m a stay at home mom and her ideas are still relevant!) Her story is pretty amazing and yet I think we can each identify with her journey at one point or another.

Must-listen for entrepreneurs

This is one of my go-to podcasts. It’s the perfect blend of inspiration, engaging stories, and—my favorite—actionable advice. Great for anyone who wants to elevate their life and work, but especially helpful for me as an entrepreneur who is focused on growing my business and impact.
