  1. I read this article with interest having just shelled out a few weeks' pocket money for the cover image for Saving Nathaniel. I did 'steal' it originally from the 'net, and it was OK to use for a non-commercial miniature version like an Authonomy cover, but when I was published and the book was for sale, I had to track down the owner and buy a licence to use it legally. It is something I think a lot of people overlook. Thanks for the info, it may save someone a letter from a solicitor or worse, a hefty fine.
