If an exception such as Fair Use or Face-to-Face is not clearly available, you must get permission to use a copyrighted work from the owner of the copyright holder. A request to use copyrighted material usually can be sent to the permission department of the work's publisher. Allow four to six weeks for a request to be processed. Permission requests should contain:
Title, author and/or editor, and edition
Exact material to be used
Number of copies you plan to make
Intended use of the material (e.g., educational)
Form of distribution (e.g., hard copy to classroom, posted on Internet with password protection)
Whether material will be sold (e.g., as part of a course reader)
When copyright clearance is needed in an online course, you may also be able to use the SIPX service (http://www.sipx.com).
