Who will inherit your copyrights?

Like many authors, I hadn't given much thought to the idea of including my copyrights into my estate planning. After all, my main focus was on writing new work. Besides, my latest will update had been signed long before I became brave enough to submit my first story. But a series of very blunt conversations with greatly-missed friend and author, Patric Michael changed my mind, and I went back to the estate plan drawing board.

How about you? Have you thought about your copyrights and their future? If you're not sure where to start click on over to Writers on the Storm and check out publishing attorney and author, Susan Spann's terrific (and ongoing) series of articles on estate planning for authors. Even the busiest author can consider it research time well spent.
