I am requesting permission to use specific photos and excerpts from articles which have appeared in your magazine, Country Weekly, on my website.
My website is a non-commercial site dedicated to my favorite country singer, Aaron Tippin. In no way will I ever realize a monetary gain from my site, nor do I wish to. I simply enjoy Aaron's music and his shows. It is my intent to share the photos and information I have acquired over the years with those that view my site. My site is located at:
www.myblueangel.com or http://members.tripod.com/myblueangel/
Both addresses will take you to the same site. The Country Weekly photos and excerpts I am requesting to use are as follows:
PHOTOS: Country Weekly issue dated 27 Jun 2000 - Aaron photo with his plane
Country Weekly issue dated 17 Nov 1998 - 3 Aaron photos with planes
EXCERPTS: Country Weekly issue dated 26 Dec 1995 - Excerpts from article on Aaron's
The excerpts from the 26 Dec 95 issue are already linked for viewing at:
The planes photos from the 17 Nov 98 and 27 Jun 00 issues are not yet linked, but can be viewed at:
The plane segment is not yet complete. I haven't finished my commentary on the first plane page; I also need more information on the planes.
My site includes over two hundred concert photos that I have personally taken. I do all my own html coding myself for my website. Aaron, his family, his management company (Tip-Top), his record label (Lyric Street) and his booking agency (Buddy Lee Attractions) are all aware of my site and its content.
I have credited your magazine in all the above instances. If you grant me permission, and I have credited the items improperly, please let me know what I need to do to correct it. If you chose not to grant me permission or only partial permission on the above requested items, I will remove those items from my website.
Thank you for your time and consideration, and hopefully, your permission.
