Maryland Copyright Law Lawyer: Getting Permission to Use Copyrighted Material

www.reichertlegal.comThere are basic steps you should follow when seeking permission of copyrighted work. First, determine who owns the copyright. Second, see if the material is protected or if you need permission to use the material. Third, determine exactly what rights you need to use the material. Forth, contact the copyright owner and seek permission. Fifth, if the owner is unwilling to grant permission, consider offering them payment for the use of the copyrighted material. Sixth, if you are able to obtain permission, make sure you have a properly drafted permission agreement signed by the copyright owner.
