By Lorenzo M. in the Hollywood CA Area - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I really wish these No Ho books were standard issue and text books for schools. They are easy to read, well organized and filled with facts.

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 of vast amount of subjects like - 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, whether it's found online or off. All agreements included as tear-outs and on CD-ROM.
The 4th edition of this essential guide is completely updated to reflect the latest laws and court decisions.

HASH(0x8d7c1ae0) out of 5 stars I've been waiting for this book for years! 21 Dec. 2010
By Claire Jordan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
NOLO nails it again! I do video and web production and I have questions about copyright and clearance all the time. In the "Wild West" days of the Internet, if you could digitize it, you could use it, but eventually copyright owners started (rightfully) demanding protection for their property. These days video and Internet production is a intellectual property minefield. And if you are doing any kind of video or Internet production and you aren't worried about intellectual property issues, both to protect your own work and to make sure you aren't using protected work in your productions, you are probably setting yourself up for, at a minimum, a major headache, or, in the worst case, an expensive legal nightmare.

This book is the answer to my prayers. It will never leave my desk! I have consulted it once or twice a week for the month or two that I've had it. Like most NOLO books, it is very well organized, making it very easy to find the answers to my questions. Clearly and concisely written, this book has satisfactorily answered all of the questions that I've put to it. It beats the pants off of the Magic 8 Ball that I used to use. I'm really pleased.

While it's not a replacement for a good lawyer for really important or complex issues, it's the best resource I've seen for a clear understanding of how licensing works and how to find and secure the rights to use content. Over the years, NOLO books have become my "go-to" resources whenever I am facing a legal issue. This book is no exception.

HASH(0x8db32354) out of 5 stars GETTING PERMISSION is essential reading for anyone who wishes to use other people's original material. 16 Dec. 2010
By Mary Lou Cheatham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Getting Permission: How to License & Clear Copyrighted Materials Online & Off provides understandable legal information for writers who work in areas involving copyrights and other permissions. First there is an explanation of the procedure involved in the permission process. We hear about intellectual property, but we may not always know what the term involves and what the laws protect. There is a general brief and clear discussion in the first chapter. What happens when people hire writers to do their work? See Chapter 1.

When we started quoting people in term papers in school, some of us wondered what permission is required when we publish something we write. When is it necessary to contact an author or publisher? Chapter 2 contains a help with this problem.

Is it all right to use another person's photographs? What permission is required? What are stock photos, and how can we find them? See Chapter 3 for websites and contact phone numbers.

Artwork, including cartoons, require permission. That's Chapter 4. Chapter 5 deals with music. Other discussions include websites and academic permissions.

Finding popular domain books and republishing them is a lucrative business now, but there are trouble spots. See Chapter 8.

Fair use, trademarks, merchandise licenses -- what do we know of these? This book is loaded with helps. There are risks in failing to obtain a release, but how to we ask for one? This book is essential for most writers! It even offers suggestions about keeping up with permissions on a spread sheet.

If I have broken any of the rules in this review, my mistakes are innocent.

HASH(0x8dc5f3cc) out of 5 stars Good detailed discussion of practical copyright issues ... 23 July 2011
By L. Mountford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm a composer who writes music for choral organizations and choirs. What makes copyright so complicated is that "copyright" is really a bundle of rights: publication, derivative works, performance, recording (mechanical) rights, grand performance rights, etc., each with its own specific set of rules.

Given the complexity of the subject, I jumped at the chance to examine and review this book.

This is definitely a comprehensive guide, especially if you want to reproduce text, photos, or music on a website -- where the most confusion seems to exist. It also explains the idea of fair use, and academic/educational uses of copyrighted works.

I didn't find it 100% helpful in my case, but I really didn't expect to. I tend to use public domain texts as lyrics for my compositions, and I'm careful to secure the appropriate permissions for the rest. Then there's the issue of creating an arrangement of an existing work (for example, a choral arrangement of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah") -- which falls under the legal definition of "derivative work." This isn't covered in Stim's book. The idea of recording "covers" is; but not creating and publishing printed music representing a new work (the choral arrangement) based on an existing one.

Still, I give this book very high marks. It's probably the most complete explanation of what copyright is and how it affects those in the creative arts today.
