   When using photos or art in your book you must get permission to use everything, especially if the picture was taken by someone else. Depending on the material and subject, you may want to consult a lawer. The most important thing is to document your agreement so that there are no assumptions and everything is clear to all parties. Here are two simple release forms that may help. When is doubt, always seek legal council.
