    advice but is intended as a useful overview for self publishing authors Here are the basics Authors hoping to include a written extract or picture for example a poem or photograph not created by them must seek permission from the owner in order to use it Only in certain situations can an author print someone else s work without seeking permission These include educational criticism or review purposes or when the owner has been dead for more than 70 years and the work has passed into the public domain Brief and familiar quotes may also be used without permission However if you are unsure whether the quote meets the legal requirements it is always worth checking It is up to the self publishing author to make every effort to contact the copyright owner whether it be the photographer writer painter or the artist s estate if he or she is no longer living and it is within the 70 years since their passing If you are not successful in making contact with the copyright owner you must make a note in your work stating that you have tried to make contact and you would be pleased to hear from the copyright owner to acknowledge them in any future reprint Make sure to keep a copy of all the relevant correspondence as proof to your claim of having tried to get in touch If you do succeed in gaining permission the owner may allow you to use his or her work through either assignment or licensing This may sometimes attract a fee In an assignment the rights to the work may be sold and the owner retains no further interest in it Most commonly you will be granted licensing where you are allowed to exploit the work but the licensor retains overall ownership Licenses can be granted informally even orally and take no particular form What about protecting my own copyright Copyright is something that a lot of new writers worry about but in practice it s probably not something you should lose sleep over The chances of someone stealing your work are minimal and even if you suspected someone had stolen it you d have a hard and expensive time proving it There s no copyright on ideas so someone could defend themselves successfully by saying they d had an idea at the same time as you and this does happen in the late 80s two Robin Hood movies went into production at the same time without realising it sometimes an idea is just a good one and several people have it at the same time zeitgeist Your copyright is not in the idea but in the expression of the idea so the exact words written in the exact same order As an author you automatically have copyright over your writing unless you assign it to someone else You do not have to go through any formal procedure if you wrote it and you have not infringed someone else s
