[QUOTE]Originally posted by T e x: [QB] [QUOTE]Originally posted by NaturalResources: [qb] Ok... I have a question maybe one of you can help me with. If I wish to use images of maps in my paper, do I have to obtain permission from every source I use, or is a simple reference to the source of the map sufficient? Also, say for example I were to use the graphic above in my paper. Do I have to obtain permission to use the "base map"? I am certian I could get around this by creating my own "base map" but this would be time consuming, and I don't really have the tools to do so. TIA, NR. [/qb][/QUOTE]The short answer is...it depends on who owns the image. That's tougher to determine nowadays in the Internet Age, but well worth the time for a serious publishing endeavor...and crucial for academic publishing. For example, legitimate book publishers pay professionals whose only job is to track down images, determine who owns the rights to them, and then to apply for permission to use said images. Oftentimes, they even credit these usually unsung heroes as "permissions editors" or some other like title. For instance, within weeks of hiring on at a college textbook house, I was asked to look into a "little problem" for a new acquisitions editor whose stable included our art titles. What I found was staggering: one freelance permissions editor was being denied permissions with OTHER PUBLISHERS simply because she had done work for us, and WE had not paid our bill...to <gulp> the Rijksmuseum. In the other case, we had not paid the folks who manage Escher's estate. In other words, two unpaid accounts threatened a *significant* portion of our arts titles: You can't do a serious "arts history" text without access to Escher, and of course going without the Dutch masters collected in the Rijks is unthinkable. So, yeah, it can be serious stuff...problems that can be easily avoided for perhaps a small fee. On the other hand, with data/images that old? You may find they are in the public domain and perfectly free for anyone to use... [/QB][/QUOTE]
