I am writing a non-fiction book about (topic removed). I am using lots of quotes from other books. Since I’m not doing this to make money, I don’t need permission to quote from other books, right? I am sure I won’t be making a profit with my book because I’m going to give away copies.
Regardless if you want to profit from the book or not, permission must still be obtained for anything that goes beyond the scope of “fair use.”
If permission is required, you need to contact the owner of the copyright, which will likely either be the writer or the publisher of the book.
