Each chapter in my book starts with a quote about knitting. Most of them are quotes that are most likely out of copyright, those rules are a little tricky. But a couple are copyrighted. Today I spent some time looking at the "Fair Use" law and wondering if I am looking for trouble down the road with those couple quotes. There's some good info on Nolo about the law, but it is still a bit vague.
I could either contact those that hold the copyright and ask for permission, or find other quotes that are out of copyright. Either way, it's a little more footwork.
This writing thing is a lot of stinkin' work.
