: Recently some websites have begun selling individual old magazine articles
There is a lot of infringement on the web. Once a patent, trademark or copyright has been registered action can be brought for infingement.
I used to believe that a magazine copyright on a article would give tne author a right on the copyright on the magazine. I have seen recent case that raise doubts as to this status of the law. I have not research this recently.
You have to know what you are doing when you are published and also see what your agreement says.
