Re: Photos, copyright etc.


I think at this point the matter should be dropped.

This post shows that the topic has fallen to the level of guessing what might have happened in a case, and if so what that might mean……

Its simply speculative and not a set-in concrete event with certainty on the related copyright rules.

I’m going with the Law School page of conditions and related restrictions as -the- reference to use.

       Only the book is copyrighted. All authors get permission for use of any images they use, if their publishers are paying attention. The permission to publish in a book is often "single use only," meaning that no permission for OTHER publication was granted. Sure, the publisher has made sure the author got permission for THAT use; but that has NOTHING to do with YOUR right to use said photo.
