Hi all,

I've run up against a problem that has my publisher stumped as well. If 
you're publishing a book or journal article and want to use pictures 
from a Web site, and you have the pictures but the site is no longer in 
existence, do you need permission? How would you handle this?

And also, what is the site still exists, but all emails to the authors 
of the site bounce?

Any help or pointers of where to look would be greatly appreciated.
