    Permission granted.

    Stim has done it again. Makes it easy for you in clear, concise language. Gives examples. Like all NOLO books, there are forms you can use. Very helpful book.

    Finally!

    Getting Permission: How to License and Clear Copyrighted Materials Online and off with Disk is an invaluable source for me. As a freelance permissions editor for several publishers, I am not always able to contact with a question. This book provides the reference needed when these situations arise. I highly recommended it to all freelance permissions editors.
