Q. How can I obtain permission to use a copyrighted work?

Answer

If your use of copyrighted works goes beyond the limits of fair use, you need to request permission from the copyright owner. The Copyright Clearance Center can obtain permission on your behalf for a fee. Keep in mind that the copyright owner is not always the author. In many instances, the author's employer or scholarly journal publisher actually owns the copyright.
