Here is an excerpt from the Copyright act of 1976:

Right to Publicity -

Famous people create a value in their name and appearance that is part of what they leave behind when they die. They have a right to control this value during their life -- that is why people pay celebrities so much for their "endorsements." State courts have generally ruled that the estates of famous people also have the right to control publicity about them after they die.

Make what you want of that.

I also would really look into the rights to the photo(s) on the cover. If you got it from a stock photography company, sometimes you get vastly different rights. There is a very good chance, you are not allowed to sell the image. I can't be 100% certain about this. I have a book of copyright laws at home, I will try to remember to look into it.

When I was in art school, we used to rip images off the internet, old stock catalogues, etc, bu I know when you are in school, and not selling the work, you are subject to a different set of laws.

If you have the images on a CD or in a book, there should be a terms of agreement somewhere that you may want to check.
Britney Spears, I am an art director for a publishing company, as long as the image is royalty-free you can do whatever you want with it. :thumbup:
I'll take that!
Images or image files cannot be distributed or re-sold independent from a product and may not be used in a manner allowing permanent storage or re-use by third parties. No licenses may be sublicensed, transferred or assigned. You agree not to make, authorize, or permit any use of any image except as specifically set forth here and on the invoice you will receive. 
This is for Image-right photos.
Images that are royalty free (don't have to pay the actual artist), but you can not profit from the images. Also, if you reproduce for non-profit, I think you have to either credit the artist or the company you bought the image(s) from. Not sure which though.Just pointing these things out. There can be serious legal trouble for copyright infringement that we don't want to deal with.
This is wrong. ROYALTY-FREE means royalty-free! I've been in the business for 13 years and the company I work for has profitted from royalty-free images. I have a library of over 50,000 images that we place in Journals, Books, Tabloids, Marketing piece, etc. etc.

Yeah, just seemed a little iffy, so I wanted to raise the flag.I took copyright classes, but that was like 5 years ago, I'm definitely no expert. Just was taking what I remembered (unclear) and what I could find on the web.
