Wait… You’re a Copywriter or a Copyrighter?

I love when I get asked, “What is a copywriter?” Want to know why? People tend to get copyrighter and copywriter confused, unless you are a writer yourself and know the lingo. This can be quite a task to explain it to my non-writing friends, but this can also be a valuable lesson to some.

Now copyrighting is the process of creative ownership of intellectual material. For instance, an article such as this one or even a book, that assigns a legal penalty for profiting from another’s work. In other words, this work is protected, by law, from plagiarism.

Now, on the other hand, a copywriter is one who writes and edits copy or already written material. Some do this for a living while others dabble in this here and there. Most copywriters will develop content for websites, sales letters, articles, books, and other entertainment. You need to sell a service? Hiring a copywriter will be beneficial to you.

Even though I own Forever Writing I still call myself a freelance copywriter. I honestly do not know why. I guess I like the ring to the name. However, you can find me writing advertisements, websites, product descriptions, and many other things.

    Too funny! No one’s ever made that mistake before with me, but who knows if they were thinking it! Darn homophones will getcha every time.

  2. I never had that problem either, but then again you never know when this may happen. I just thought this may be a good topic to cover just in case this issue may arise.

    Homophones do create some interesting topics of conversation or in this case blogging.
