Other Liability Concerns

There are other sources of legal problems for publishers and editors that are beyond the scope of this manual. Perle and Williams on Publishing Law3 and Law of the Web: A Field Guide to Internet Publishing6 are good resources for information that address many of these problems, including issues related to copyright, patent, and trademark (see 5.6, Intellectual Property: Ownership, Access, Rights, and Management), privacy (see 5.8, Protecting Research Participants' and Patients' Rights in Scientific Publication), advertising and liability (see 5.12, Advertisements, Advertorials, Sponsorship, Supplements, Reprints, and E-prints), circulation audits, subscription list fraud, taxation and accounting issues, and employment issues.
