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 /extract.
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.
