Quotation and Extract Licence (Author's Version)
Writers will often want to incorporate an extract or quotation from another
work into their own. If the quoted work remains in copyright, consent will
generally be required. If this is the case, such consent can be formalised
in a written agreement.
This Quotation and Extract Licence is designed for use in such situations.
Having set out the quotations and / or extracts that are to be used, the
agreement sets out important details with respect to the ownership of
copyright in the source work, the use to which the licensee can put the
quotation /extract, the original author’s right to a credit or
acknowledgement and the fee to be paid for the use of the quotation
Two versions of this licence are available. This version is designed for
use in situations where the author of the original work retains full
ownership of it and the copyright subsisting in it. The agreement is thus
between the author and the licensee. It is often the case, however, that
published works are assigned or licensed to publishers. If this is the
case, an alternative version of the agreement – between a publisher and
licensee – is also available.
Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be
read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused
options should be removed from the document.
