Submitting to magazines? Be clear on your rights as a freelance writer

People ask me all the time about first rights, serial rights, reprint rights... all that magazine stuff.

Beats me! : )

Seriously, I have no idea. I've never submitted an article to a print magazine, never been approached by a publisher.

The work my firm does is purely "work for hire" which means that upon payment, the copyright belongs to the client.

But it's good to know and understand these terms and issues, so here's a good explanation.
