  • 8. Approaches for Interviewing in Software Testing - Book About author An author (sometimes, in reference to a woman author, authoress) is defined both as "the person who originates or gives existence to anything" and that authorship determines responsibility for what is created. The second entry goes on to clarify that, when using the term "author," the "anything" which is created is most usually associated with written work. Author of a written work Legal significance In copyright law, there is necessarily little flexibility as to what constitutes authorship. The United States Copyright Office defines copyright as "a form of protection provided by the laws of the United States (title 17, U.S. Code) to authors of "original works of authorship". Holding the title of "author" over any "literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, [or] certain other intellectual works" gives this person, the owner of the copyright, exclusive right to do or authorize any production or distribution of their work. Any person or entity wishing to use intellectual property held under copyright must receive permission from the copyright holder to use this work, and often will be asked to pay for the use of copyrighted material. After a fixed amount of time, the copyright expires on intellectual work and it enters the public domain, where it can be used without limit. Copyright law has been amended time and time again since the inception of the law to extend the length of this fixed period where the work is exclusively controlled by the copyright holder. However, copyright is merely the legal reassurance that one owns his/her work. Technically, someone owns their work from the time it's created. An interesting aspect of authorship emerges with copyright in that it can be passed down to another upon one's death. The person who inherits the copyright is not the author, but enjoys the same legal benefits. Questions arise as to the application of copyright law. How does it, for example, apply to the complex issue of fan fiction? If the media agency responsible for the authorized production allows material from fans, what is the limit before legal constraints from actors, music, and other considerations, come into play? As well, how does copyright apply to fan-generated stories for books? What powers do the original authors, as well as the publishers, have in regulating or even stopping the fan fiction? Relationship between author and publisher The publisher of a work might receive a percentage calculated on a wholesale or a specific price and or a fixed amount on each book that is sold. Publishers, at times, reduced the risk of this type of arrangement, by agreeing only to pay this after a certain amount of copies had sold. In Canada this practice occurred during the 1890s, but was not commonplace until the 1920s. • Commissioned: Publishers made publication arrangements, and authors covered all expenses (today the practice of authors paying for their publications is often called vanity publishing, and is looked down upon by many publishers, even though it may have been a common and accepted practice in the past). Publishers would receive a percentage on the sale of every copy of a book, and the author would receive the rest of the money made. • For more information about author, please visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Author Copyrights: www.interviewsandjobs.com
  • 9. Approaches for Interviewing in Software Testing - Book How to use this book? A team of scientists studied many possible ways to use this book. Some of their discoveries remain a secret and a few of them will be published in the hard copy or in simpler words – those who shell as less as $10 from their pockets. A few of their discoveries were permitted to be published here and they are: You have been clearing interviews without this book right now. How about trying to clear interviews with this book? When an interviewer asks you a question, try opening a part of the book as though your body language is that you would open a book, cite something from it to answer any question asked to you. Make it a part of your interview preparation exercise and you will be fine. If you are an interviewer then you flip the book in front of the candidate and ask her if she has read the book. If she has, then open up page 14 and ask her what is in it?. If she answers give her a job else ask her about page 15. You can drag her till the 223rd page. If she was patient in responding to all of them, she definitely deserved a question that is on page 241. Maybe a job as well to replace you. In such an event your boss is the one who is in bad need of this book for hiring good people. So, there you go – everyone needs this book. We however do not recommend reading this book when you are traveling as reading during travel may cause a blur vision. We look forward to your discoveries of how to use this book and you may share them at discoveries@interviewsandjobs.com Copyrights: www.interviewsandjobs.com
