Dear Air-List,

I am in the process of publishing a book about blogs and would like to use
not just screenshots, but also individual photos taken from the blog. These
photos were more often than not, taken by the bloggers themselves and might
be considered theirs in copyright terms (although there is nothing to
indicate this in the text itself).

What are your experiences with publishing this sort of material? How did
you proceed? Did you ask the bloggers for permission? Any tipps?

I would be greatful for any help!
