Millions await your message

AUTHORS' RIGHTS campaigner Carol Lee is researching a challenge to magazines' copyright policies. We expect that this will reclaim many millions of pounds for writers and photographers. The mags have received payments for photocopying their contents - and bodies representing them have kept these, claiming all copyright is owned outright. You will find a list of magazines that we're particularly interested in below.

If you have contributed words or images to any of these in the past three years and if you retained your copyright in those contributions, please contact Carol directly: email carol@carollee.demon.co.uk. Please also contact Carol if you do work for any magazine that use significant freelance material and where many freelances keep their copyright.
