Enquiry On Copying Poems From Nairaland by Yampotatocarrot(m): 5:37am On May 19, 2016
Good morning all. Please I have a question. Though I've been on Nairaland for a while, but I'm not used to visiting the poem section, hence the question. I want to pick poems from this section of Nairaland for the forthcoming graduation ceremony of a school for the pupils to recite. So my question is, is it allowed or not? Though someone might say why ask when you can just copy it down, but I think it's better this way so that I can do it with a free conscience since most works here are still "fresh". Thanks and Please I need a reply soonest.

Most, if not all works on Nairaland are protected by copyright. That's why you see "All Rights reserved". If you need to use someone's work, just ask the owner. I am certain that most poets here wouldnt mind giving you permission to use their work. Some may have conditions though. For example, most people would let you use their work for free provided it is not for commercial purposes. Hope this helps.
