|Most Newspapers and magazines have websites that can help you find great articles and pictures on any subject. Their websites tel you how to request permission to reprint something that you saw or found with research. Ms. Hilda Cosmo of the New York Times Copyrights and Permissions Department was very kind to send us this advice by e-mail:|

Permission is required for use of any material that is published by The New York Times Newspaper or The New York Times on the Web, art and photography are included as well. We have two permissions departments: one for permission to use material that originated in the newspaper and one for use of original material on the web. Original material on the web appears in the Technology/CyberTimes area.
Each use must be cleared separately. A fee is charged depending on the use of the material.
Instructions on how to apply for permission may be found at the urls below.
Newspaper originated content on the web
Cybertimes (original content on the web)
In case that the The New York Times does not own the rights to material that is being requested, contact information will be given for follow up with the copyright owner.
Copyright notices are listed at the bottom of each page of our website. When a user clicks on the hotlink it opens to a page that includes a detailed Copyright notice: http://www.nytimes.com/subscribe/help/copyright.html
The area of law that relates to copyright is called Intellectual Property Law. The Library of Congress website contains a great deal of information that might be helpful to you in gathering information for your project:http://www.loc.gov/
