: I want to publish a collection (350)interesting tidbits from my hometown newspaper
: dating from the early 1800's until now. I met with the newspaper editor to give him an
: idea of the project and ask permission to use direct quotes from the paper. He said he
: would check with his lawyer and let me know. That was a year ago and many unreturned phone
: calls. From your web site, it looks like I can use anything published before 1923 without
: his permission. Is there ANYTHING I can do to work around his refusal to give me copyright
: permission on the years after 1923? I would gladly give his paper all the credit as I explained to him.
: I really want to use direct quotes because they reveal the oddities of our little town
: that are charming and comical. Any suggestions???
Dear N. Stolkes,
I don't carry that answer in my head. There may be a question about copying from your source that could be a problem. I'm not going to reseach this.
