Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Whether you're a musician, writer, or collage artist, at some point you'll run into the problem of copyright. Nolo Press has come to the rescue with Getting Permission, by intellectual property attorney Richard Stim, providing everything you need, from information about the proper permit and how to get it is inside to ready-to-use forms and links to information resources online and off-. Even if you've never looked into the sometimes-murky world of copyright law, you'll be up to speed on concepts such as public domain and fair use just after browsing the first chapter. Additional material on tracking down copyright owners, writing permission letters, and tracking permits makes your job simple, especially if you plan to use many different materials.

Specific chapters cover music rights, artwork, trademarks, Web site permissions, academic permissions, and the nitty-gritty on fair use. Stim writes clearly and forcefully and isn't afraid to acknowledge that some aspects of his subject are still unclear. Advising caution in these legal frontiers, he still sticks with Nolo's empowerment theme by helping you keep up with the latest trends from home. The book comes with a PC floppy disk containing computer-ready forms in ASCII and rich text formats--a marvelous aid to the wired artist. If you want to use someone else's work legally but don't want to consult with an attorney, sample the power of DIY with Nolo Press's Getting Permission. --Rob Lightner --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Can't see enough good things about this book. Extremely useful and very readable. The author takes you step by step through the permissions process for all kinds of things. I especially like the practical advice on how to avoid or at least minimize licensing fees. The section on music samples answers a lot of questions and makes this book a must for people who do that sort of thing. The chapter on website permission should prevent anyone from getting (forgive me) tangled in lawsuit. As usual with NOLO, there are forms you can use at the back and also on a disk. HOW MUCH EASIER CAN IT GET? Great index too. This is THE book on the subject. If you have any questions about whether you can use something-- buy this book first. It'll save you headaches later.

There is a lot of information in this book, lots to read and it is very in depth on the subject of copyrighted materials. What is very convenient is that the book includes a CD which has all of the forms that you will need to seek permission for various copyrighted materials. There are few books out there that will answer so many topics related to this subject in the detail that it does.

Format: Paperback
Regardless of whether you use the Internet or do traditional publishing work, you need to know how to get permission to use the work of others. On the Internet this increasingly important in view of the issues surrounding deep linking and related challenges in a world where a simple HTML tag to someone else's work can bring legal problems. This book provides expert guidance that covers how to obtain permission, copyright research, what constitutes fair use, and how to legally use trademarks.
The book also clarifies the definition of "public domain" and what needs to be in a license agreement.
What makes this book especially valuable is that it comes with 32 forms that range from standard photo use and test use permission to linking agreements, interview releases, art for hire and more.

If you want to use copyrighted material for your own purposes, you need to get permission from the owners first. If you don't, you could find yourself stuck in a costly lawsuit. This book, Getting Permission, shows you how to get through the permissions process. This guide is very readable and will give you a basic introduction to the permissions process, the public domain or free stuff, how to figure out and find someone who owns a copyright, what constitutes fair use, how to get academic permissions, license and merchandise agreements, what a trademark is and how to use them, how to use a fictional character, website permissions, as well as forms and a CD rom. The book covers information on music, photos, text, characters, and much more. Nolo also gives helpful suggestions as to where to go for more information on a specific topic. I found that this guide was a great introduction to getting permission for just about anything. This book will be a wonderful resource guide for years because the information contained therein is easy to understand and reliable.

Format: Paperback
So many other books talk about how to protect your own intellectual property, or how you can get into trouble if you use someone else's material.
This is the ONLY book I've found that tells you how to go about using someone else's material legally. Its step-by-step approach makes it very straightforward, and eliminates the mystery about what to do and what to expect.
This has helped me obtain a merchandise license agreement to print and market posters of an author/artist I admire and enjoy. I would NOT have known where to start without this book (or finding a high-priced copyright attorney). I still use an attorney, but just to review a contract which I already understand on my own.
Where else could you find this information? Simply Great!
