Obtain Proper Permission When Using Copyrighted Material

| Leave a comment

If you are planning to use copyrighted material in an article, publication, presentation or program materials, you must obtain permission. The University's Copyright Permission Center works closely with publishers, rightsholders, and the University of Minnesota Office of the General Counsel to help you get the permission you need. Their effective process makes it worth the nominal fee they charge. 

You can submit your permission request online. Remember to give yourself plenty of time to get permission and be aware of the center's busiest months-before the start of a school term.  See their deadlines and plan accordingly!
