  • Can I reproduce a newspaper obituary on my ancestor without permission?
  • How do I know whether something is in the public domain?
  • Does copyright protect my Web site?
  • Who owns the client report?
  • Can I publish my ancestor's diary without anyone's permission?
  • Is my lecture or lesson protected by copyright?
  • If I write something for my genealogical society as a volunteer, who owns the copyright?
  • Do I need permission to download GEDCOM files?
