Have a question about using something as a quote.

Before I get to the point in my novel where this really matters. I needed to know what are the rules on using a song title or a quote that someone else said for one of your characters to say? Do you need to get permission from that person or not? I need to make sure it is okay to use it because if not I will leave that part out. Any advice would be very helpful. Thanks in advance. :mrgreen:

Okay thank you. It is more less a title of a song but it is also in the lyrics so I will avoid altogether. :mrgreen:

It want hurt the story at all to leave it out so I am not going to put it in there at all. I may find another way to put what I want to the character say. Thank you.

fyi, roda, song and other titles can be used without obtaining permission, since they're not covered by copyright... it's the lyrics you need to have permission to use... if the title word/phrase also appears in the lyrics, only the title rule applies in re using it as a passing reference...

Yeah that's why I'm debating. But I can always go to the official site and send them a message then hope for best but I may just leave it alone. As it will fit better in the next novel I would like to write and may wait until to get permission to use it. I still debating to which is best. Thank you for letting me know about the wait to get permission. :D
