From one story to another?...

Post by Pauljones » Thu Jan 21, 2010 1:10 am

I was wondering if the copyright laws allow you to copy one small part of a text from one story to another as long as you include a notice saying that you do not own this part and that it does belong to someone else??

Thanks =) Paul xx

You really should contact the publishers of the other story and get permission.
Chances are they will let you - after all it helps to promote their book.
