? repriting my out-of-print text that contain permissions material
- January 22, 2010 @ 7:33pmdkurland says:My text book is formally out of print. I own copyright and publishing rights.
A school wants permission from me to distribute copies of a pdf version to its students. Can I provide permission, for a financial payment, even though the textbook contains numerous excerpts for which permission was granted and payment was made to various other publishers? How do I handle this? Must I give permission for use with no payment to me?

It seems to me that what you can do at this point depends upon what you agreed to (and paid for) when first publishing the textbook. Do you have information on the licensing that allowed you to include others' work? If not, perhaps your original publisher would? Or, possibly your agreement with the publisher might include information on what your publishing rights include.
