How can I tell if something is copyright protected if I want to use it in my book?

In most cases, any picture, material, text, information, quote, map, song, or illustration that you personally did not create is copyright protected by the person who created and/or published the material. Any text or pictures found in a book, magazine or newspaper is copyright protected by the publisher, artist, photographer or another individual. Most information found on the Internet is copyright protected as well.

Can I use a quote in my book without getting permission?

It depends. Under “Fair Use” some copyright protected material can be used without permission; however, there are no clear-cut rules, only guidelines and factors to be considered. “Fair Use” is not a right, only a defence. If you are unsure, please consult a legal advisor.

The following four factors are used to determine fair use:

1) The purpose and character of the use, including potential gains for commercial or non-profit

2) The nature of the original copyrighted work

3) The proportion or percentage of the copyrighted material in relation to the work as a whole and

4) The potential effect on the value of the copyrighted material.

There is no defined rule regarding the number of lines or words that can be used without permission. Also, simply citing the source is not an alternate for obtaining permission to use the material. In general, if you are quoting a work, only using a few lines within a long book, you will probably be protected under “fair use.” However, if you are concerned at all, and to be on the safe side, always consult with a qualified professional before using copyrighted materials in your book unless you have a written permission.

You can also use a work that is considered “in the public domain,” which means that a work’s copyright has expired or lacks proper notice. Works in the public domain are not copyright protected and are free to use without permission. However, determining if a work is truly in the public domain can be a tricky task due to new versions of older works, protection in countries other than the India, U.S., and protection under alternative laws.

Which pictures can I use without permission?

Without permission from the original photographer or copyright holder, only pictures that you have personally taken can be used without permission (unless a photo is “in the public domain” because the copyright has expired). If a picture is found in a book, newspaper or magazine, you cannot use the image without getting permission. Pictures and information found on the Internet are not “public domain.” Most material found on the Internet is copyright protected. Additionally, photographers retain the rights to photographs they take, even if the picture is of you or a family member. You need to obtain permission from the photographer even if you purchased a print of the photograph. When in doubt, get permission or consult a legal professional.

How do I obtain permission and what do I do with it?

In order to obtain permission, you can contact the copyright holder and explain what work you wish to use and for what purpose. Request their written permission for you to use the material in publication. Some copyright holders will provide permission for free and others will charge a fee. If you cannot get a reply after several attempts, you may be able to use the material without permission, but make sure to keep all documented instances of failed attempts and consult a legal professional to be sure.

Keep the written permission in your possession if for any reason you should need to prove permission in the future. The copyright holder may or may not require additional credit in the book itself.
