Copyright Permissions

The issue of fair use and permission to quote copyrighted material was raised in the still undecided Harry Potter Lexicon trial.

JKR isn't the only copyright holder who says "yay" or "nay" for what can be quoted in other works (tho, given the commentary I read on blogs, listservs, and the likes, it sometimes seems as if JKR is the only one!)

Apparently -- the owner(s) of the Grateful Dead lyrics have said "no" for quotage in a new YA book. The full story is over at Boing Boing.

I learned about this on my new favorite Web 2.0 toy, Twitter.
