Are You Ready to Get Published?
By Janet Woods



• Don't send your book in for production if you haven't received all permissions to use quotes, charts, tables, and figures.

• You will need to get all permissions in writing.

• If there is no copyright notice on the material you want to use, don't assume there is no copyright in effect.

• Most likely no material on a Web site is free of copyright law.

• Author dead? Don't assume the material is fair use or public domain.

• Using similar words, or changing the order of a sentence does not mean that it is yours.

• Guess what, just because you give credit to stuff used does not take the place of getting permission to use material.

• All quotes from previously published material should be written exactly as they were in the original source. And if they are long, they most likely requires permissions.
When you, as an author submit your work to a publisher, if it contains material from outside sources, such as photographs, text quotes, cartoons, full article reprints, charts, line drawings, graphs, maps, or screen get the permissions required for their use before submission.
