Lately I've grown concerned about copyright infringement. Gilbert's blog has existed for awhile, but do you think he has Lara's permission for those excerpts?
Gilbert teaches fiction courses at a university in California. I'm certain that he receives permission before printing anything. Gilbert's blog is well read and I expect that an author is pleased to have him write about their book.Every writer or blogger needs to be concerned about copyright infringement, but I believe that quoting a few sentences is permissible.
