Publishing "imaginary" quotes by someone else
I am writing a book and to spice things up I´d want to add some funny quotes.
- John Doe is a presenter of a big tv show and famous for his witty remarks.
- I would write similar to this - "if mr John Doe commented on this he would probably say "yes this is a bunch of baloney" (or similar).
- I would clearly state in the beginning of the book that these quotes are fictional
- The quotes would of course not be defamatory, include hatred/racism or whatever offensive material.
Do I have to ask for permission etc to do this?
