: : : I am currently writing a novel that makes reference to a couple of celebrity's names, for example "Quentin Tarrintino" In the Prolougue of the book, i use a line from a rap groups song, Giving them credit for the lyrics. My question is can I use the celebritys names, and the lyric of the song.

: : : An example, would be, "Yeah the guy thinks he's cool like Charles Bronson." "That guy is as strong as Arnold Swartzenegger"

: : :
: : : Rap lyric example: "Im the King of Rock, there is none Higher, sucka M.C's should call me sire."

: : : Run DMC

: : : Thanks

Dear Jeff,

I note my crazy typying in the last reply, I was not brought up on the computer.

Without taking professional responsibility, you are safer using celebrity names, but it still depends on the context.
