Research and writing, whether business or academic, legal or commercial, does not exist in a vacuum. Books and essays are often based on previously published writings and may draw heavily on those works. However, previously published material, including articles, essays, and other written content, is usually protected by copyright. With certain exceptions for academic or personal use, U.S. copyright law prohibits the use of copyrighted material without the owner’s specific consent.
The enclosed document lets an owner permit the reprinting of its published work. You can provide detailed information about how the material may be used and the extent of its incorporation into the secondary publication. The copyright holder can be assured of its continuing ownership rights, and the requestor will gain rights to material it needs to move forward with publication.
