Other Liability Concerns 

Ethical and Legal Considerations

Annette Flanagin

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

AMA Manual of Style requires a subscription or purchase to access the full text of books within the service. Public users can however freely search the site and view the abstracts and keywords for each book and chapter.
