A great resource for up-to-date legal information is on attorney Elizabeth Russell's "Art Law For Everyone" blog. Elizabeth's blog covers copyright and trademark issues such as registering copyrights of multiple works together, legal information for website owners, why register your art with the copyright office, understanding lawyers, using work of U.S. Government in your art, explains what published work means when filing for copyrights, and much more.
Note: Another source of legal information with over 50 articles is on attorney Joshua Kaufman's site. See "Resource: Legal Information for Artists & Photographers." Also check-out the article "Hire a Lawyer - but Which One?"
