Copyright Permission Letter

Copyright Owner

A copyright permission letter is used for the purpose of seeking permission from the copyright owner to use the owner's material / work.

This implies that if you intend to use any copyrighted work then you need to obtain permission of the copyright owner. In absence of such permission, your use of copyrighted work will be considered an infringement.

However, it is important to check laws of the relevant jurisdiction as to whether the intended use of copyrighted work requires or does not require permission of the copyright owner. For instance, if the use falls within the scope of ‘fair use’ then you can use it without permission.
