Tom | 3 comments I'm publishing a book with multiple epigraphs/quotes from authors on goodreads. Many of the quotes do not cite the source materials, only the author name. How does goodreads resolve copyright permissions? Can I cite goodreads for copyright permissions for these quotes? If not, how do I get permission for quotes I can't source?

No.

Fair use would likely not apply for a book you plan to sell, but consult a legal advisor.
