What is meant by the term “rights and permissions?”

Copyright law is complicated and nuanced. You should consult your press for answers to specific questions about when and for what you need to request permission. Some scholarly societies (such as the College Art Association and the Society for Cinema and Media Studies) also offer guidelines on navigating copyright, and your library may have a copyright specialist on staff. There are also many resources on specific areas of rights and permissions.
