Legal Publishing

The term legal publishing or publishing law is defined basically as the body of law that relates to the publication of newspapers, magazines, electronic materials, books and other works of art. It is however, not a distinct legal topic but a collection of laws spread out over certain legal areas such as intellectual property, torts and the law of contracts. Legal publishing and printing is ideally the preserve of authors and publishers.

The term legal publishing is also used to refer to the production of texts that discuss the practice of law or texts that report laws. Legal printing and publishing was initially limited to printed material only. It is now extended to include electronic media, and many publications today exist in digital formats only, such as digital files on CD-ROMS.

Legal printing and publishing began way back in the 17th and 18th centuries as that is when printing presses allowed the printing of legal documents and laws. These laws were basically what is now referred to as common law. It is only many years later that social laws and other laws were printed and published as well. Serious legal printing and publishing began in the late nineteenth century, when the reports and findings of the Supreme Court were printed then published.

Later, publishers started focusing on federal decisions and legal decisions made by the federal government. States then started publishing their own statutes. Soon there arose a need to ensure that the reporting followed certain organized formats as reports, especially those regarding the reporting of judicial processes.

The process of publishing can be defined as the act of making public and distributing visual and literary works usually done by authors. Authors are defined as the individuals or organizations that write such as journalists and writers. Authors are in today’s modern world recognized as video artists, film makers, photographers and all other artists whose works of art do get published. Whenever legal publishing work or any legal printing work has been accomplished, most publishers and printers will get a lawyer or other legal professional to examine the work and review it for any legal pitfalls.

This is why publishers need to be very careful when printing or publishing legal documents. They need to be very careful as they will be held personally responsible for any omissions, errors, mistakes and transgressions of their authors. These include, but are not limited to, trademark and copyright materials.
