Sample Permission Request Letter for Copyrighted Materials

Ito ang isa sa ipinamigay naming dokumento sa mga attendee ng Seminar on Copyright and Textbooks. Ang seminar na ito ay inorganisa ko sa tulong ng Balangay Productions, Freelance Writers Guild of the Philippines, C and E Publishing, National Book Development Board, Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines at Filipinas Copyright Licensing Society. Ginanap ito noong May 7, 2016 sa isa sa mga function room ng C and E Book Store, Quezon Avenue, Quezon City.

Ito ay sample na liham para sa mga kailangang humingi ng permiso sa paggamit ng copyrighted material. Ito ay ibinibigay sa mga may ari o may hawak ng copyright ng materyal o materyales na nais ninyong ilathala sa inyong textbook o sa anumang publikasyon. Maaari ninyong kopyahin ang liham na ito.
