LOGOS 224 And Another Thing ... May I quote you? Notes from a traveller in the jungle of permissions Hazel Bell Of all the editor’s and writer’s chores, obtaining copyright permissions for quotations can be the most frustrating. In the year 2001, I assembled an anthology of extracts from indexes. Anything pub- lished before 1930, provided the author had died more than seventy years ago, was blessedly open territory. I took some macabre pleasure from Arthur Conan Doyle’s having died in 1930. To quote any- thing published after that year, or by an author who lived after that year, permission was required – unless it could be regarded as that agonizingly inde- finable concept “fair use”. By the pricking of my thumbs, I made a list of the extracts which were short enough not to need permission to quote. This brought me to the first hurdle – who held the rights to all the others? Some of the authors on my list had died since 1930, so rights to their works were no longer held by their publishers, but by their heirs. To learn who these might be, I consulted and received great help from the Literary Estates
