Do I need permission if I have reused information and data from a table?

If you use a table that has been published in a previous work, or if you faithfully reproduce a section or piece of a table from a previous work, then you should check who owns the copyright for the original table and seek permission to reuse the data/material.

If you have taken some data or information from a table in an original work and then used that data in conjunction with your own in a new table (as opposed to using the original table itself), then you do not need to seek permission for the use of the original table (as it is not strictly derivative use), but you must add the citation reference to the caption for the new table, acknowledging that the table includes data and figures previously presented in [source] and provide the citation in the references.
