I need someone to investigate copyright permissions and reach out for permissions for various text passages and media.

We have a spreadsheet that keeps track of pending works that need to be marked as public domain or have the copyright permissions further investigated.

For example, a speech made by Kennedy would be public domain and we do not need to research who the copyright holder is.

But a political cartoon or poem published after 1923 would need permission or investigation to confirm that the work is open source.

In addition to the spreadsheet that keeps track of the "pending" works, we also have some special projects that are much larger to investigate sources and works so this can be a big, ongoing project.

Please demonstrate that you understand how copyrights work. Ie, know what "fair use" is and what the Creative Commons are. Academic and publishing background are strongly preferred.
