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 a lawsuit.

Getting Permission tackles the permissions process head on. 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 permissions process
*the public domain
*copyright research
*fair use
*academic permissions
*the elements of a license and merchandise agreement
*the use of a trademark or fictional character
*and much more

Getting Permission includes agreements for acquiring authorization to use text, photographs, artwork and music. All agreements included as tear-outs and on CD-ROM.

The 2nd edition of this essential book is completely updated to reflect the latest laws and court decisions. It also covers new directions in permissions rules, such as the "CopyLeft" movement and Copyright Commons.

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
