    If it is a copyright article under copyright act, I'm afraid you shouldn't quote.

    You'll have to seek the permission of Mr. Smith first before you can say that.

    Re: Usage of " courtesy of"

    Hi guys, thank you.

    I have another related question. If I read an academic paper, which usually bears a long bibliography. I am wondering whether the author/authoress had to ask for the permissions for the usage?

    Bibliography is the list of books and journals that are relevant to the subject of discussion.I don't think permission is required for that.Let's wait for others'views.

    Oh, sorry daffodils...I was mistaken.
    If it is only the link that you are providing, there is no issue of copyright or permission.

    If you quote material from the writings of someone, you must ask permission - if the writings are in copyright.

    If you are citing a work in a bibliography, you do not need to seek permission - it is merely indicating the source of your information,
