“A few years ago Leonard DuBoff represented me and my photography firm when I had a copyright case with a large casino conglomerate. We were able to settle the case in my favor and I am forever grateful to Leonard and his team. This book of his, The Law (in Plain English)® for Photographers, has been a valuable resource ever since. The content and information within the book has served as a way to educate my clients in the laws regarding copyright issues and has allowed me to pave a smooth path in resolving conflict and disagreements about photographers’ rights regarding ownership of original works. I highly recommend this book as a way to save time and money—and peace of mind—when discussing copyright law.” —photographer Jeff Dow
