Only the owner of the copyright in he book may give permission.
The author is not necessarily the owner of copyright in a published book because:-
- the author might have assigned or exclusively licensed the copyright in the work to the publisher and would not be able to give permission;
- under copyright law, the publisher and not the author has the exclusive right to make a reproduction of a published edition.
Please obtain permission from the correct party when seeking to upload more than 10% or one chapter of a published work. One possible way to identify the copyright owner is to look for the © print e.g. “© Jane Doe 2019”
