Monday Muddle: copywrite, copyright

Monday Muddle: Even copywriters aren’t likely to use the word “copywrite” unless they are talking about the rapper or the disk duplicator. (In both those cases, it should have a capital C.) And your spellchecker will almost certainly underline it. Mine did. If you see “copywrite” followed by a date, you can bet that the writer meant “copyright”. #MonMud
