Overview

Want to use copyrighted material? Better get permission first.

If you plan to use any copyrighted material for your own purposes, you need to get permission first from the owners of that work. If you don't, you could find yourself slapped with an expensive and time-consuming lawsuit.

Getting Permission tackles the permissions process head-on — without the legalese. It shines the light on whom to ask for permission, as well as when — and how much to expect — to pay for permission. Comprehensive and easy-to-read, the book covers:

• the copyright permission process
• the public domain (“free” content)
• how to figure out who owns a copyright
• the “fair use” rule
• school-related permissions
• license and merchandise agreements
• using trademark and fictional characters
• website permissions
• and much more

Getting Permission includes agreements for acquiring authorization to use text, photographs, artwork, and music, whether it's found online or off. The edition of this essential guide is completely updated to reflect the latest laws and court decisions. Plus, read an all-new collection of practical, real-life FAQs, based on author Richard Stim's popular intellectual property blog, Dear Rich: Nolo's Patent, Copyright & Trademark Blog.
