Anthology and quotation rights

These rights cover the reproduction of original copyright text or illustrations from one source in another, for example in another book, magazine or journal. They are normally handled on a passive basis in that they are not actively promoted but must be dealt with when requests come in. The right to grant permissions in original material from a work is normally included as a part of the rights granted to the original publisher; the proportion of any fees passed on to the author is usually 50%.
