I have a question regarding quoting others' articles:

Company A wanted to quote some parts from others' articles in a book. And Company A asked for the permission from the authors of the articles, approved. After the book is finished, company A transferred the copyright to Company B, and Company B will publish this book finally. Does Company B have to ask for the permission from the authors of the articles? In my understanding, the copyright of the book belongs to the Company A, so A has right to transfer its book to B. So B doesn't need to ask for permission again, right?

Hi cindylin

Once permission has been granted to use extracts in another work then that permission would normally continue to remain good irrespective of the ownership of the work. However if company A asked for permission only in respect of one specific use, and permission was granted on this basis, then the rights holder should be contacted again if the eventual use is in a very different format. In this instance it seems clear that as company A intended to publish a book, and that will now be done by company B, there shouldn't be any need to re-check with the rights holder.

And of course we now have the exception for quotation which may mean it is no longer necessary to obtain permission before quoting.
