I want to create a book based on short quotes from over 200 different artists most quotes about 5-20 words in length and very few up to about 50 words.
I want to publish and sell this book mainstream.
Will I get sued?Thank you for all the help to those of you that answered. I will not be using any images in the book but I will be using very well known recognizable quotes. From what I am hearing it's pretty much a take your chances situation with what I am trying to do. I do notice there are a ton of famous quotes books out there but these are from people .. not from songs. I was planning on mentioning in the opening pages of the book that "We highly encourage anyone who loves the quotes in this book to purchase music from the artists listed, spend money on going to see these acts perform and buy any dvds that the artists sell. Please support the artists and the labels represented herein. My hope is that this book will inspire people to find out more about the artists whose quotes are being printed. Obviously I need to set up an LLC before publishing this book. :) Any other advise would be greatly appreciated.
