Learn more about Permission to Reprint Published Material

Published research and writing, whether business, academic or legal, does not exist in a vacuum. Books and essays are often based on previously published writings and may draw heavily on those works. However, previously published material, which may include articles, essays or other written content, is often copyrighted. With certain exceptions for academic or personal use, U.S. copyright law prohibits the use of the copyrighted material without permission.

A LegalZoom Permission to Reprint Published Material allows you to provide detailed information about how the material will be used and the extent of its incorporation into your publication. The copyright holder will have sufficient information to make its decision and you will be well on your way to securing the rights to material you need to complete the publication of your work.

Common questions

Do I need a special software to download or view legal forms online?
You will need Microsoft Word (97 or higher) to download and use the legal documents, and Adobe Acrobat Reader to download the form instructions. You can download Acrobat Reader for free here.
Can I use the forms more than once?
You can use the form as many times as you want for personal use or, if you are an attorney, for your clients. You may not transfer the form to any other third party for their use. For more information on LegalZoom policies, see our Terms and Conditions.
When can I download my form?
