July 7, 2006, Newsletter Issue #39: Copyright and Book Design

Tip of the Week

Didnít your parents teach you to ask for permission? Some graphic collections are sold for publication, but often they are expensive. If you use a graphic that you find online, or that came in a collection, you must receive permission to use the graphic. If you do not have permission to use an image, you will be violating the graphic designer's copyright.

*Never simply assume the graphic is "ok," you need to make absolutely sure or you open yourself and your book up to lawsuits and copyright infringement violations.

*There are plenty of sites available that offer art for cover or text images at very low costs or even free of charge. Look around.
