Hi, I'd like to use some kind of visual content in nearly every blog post I write because I think they look better with images, photos...etc. I have been using my own photos and public domain images so far but I want to write some book reviews and I would like to be able to include an image of the book cover in my review.
For those of you who are more au fait with blogging than I am, do you know about copyright laws surrounding use of images in blogs? Would it be acceptable for me to use a book cover image from the Barnes and Noble or Amazon website, for example? I would credit the image to its source, of course, but I am unsure whether using an image like that would be okay. Does it come under fair use laws?
The blog I need help with is culturallife.wordpress.com.
