Exactly. That's my point. It's just too hard to know what's beyond being legal. I checked a couple of web sites of the publishing houses and read the statements of copyright laws, but that wasn't enough of an explanation, I thought. So I posted a question here since we're photographers of some kind.

Do you think it's better to ask the publishing house directly on this? Or they might not fully understand the problem because they could be over-reacting to whatever seems violating their rules.
