: I'm beginning to write a newsletter and have several questions regarding copyright.
: #1 - Is a newsletter considered a compilation if the articles, etc are not all written by the same author?
: #2 - If I ask someone to write an article for the newsletter, is it considered commissioned? Does it matter if it is a researched subject or an editorial?
: #3 - If I understand correctly, titles cannot be copyrighted. Is that correct? I wish to use a title similar to another publication, although I didn't realize theirs existed until today.
: #4 - Are there any other things I ought to know regarding copyright law for this type of publication.
: Thank you!

Dear A. Hayek,
The answer is a treatise. It can all be done but, carefully. Certainly good written agreements will save lots to worry.
It stuff like this that keeps lawyers in business.
