Dear Entomo-Listers

When authors send me papers for publication, I try to remember to remind
them to ask permission to reproduce images from the owner of the copyright.
Whether non-human or human entities, an email is generally all it takes to
say "yes". Yet, sometimes money needs to be transacted or the reply is "no"
or no reply at all is available.

My question is, if one cannot get permission, how different does the new
image have to be to be considered as "different" from the previously
published one and be free from the concerns of copyright violations.

Your anecdotes (whether personal or from someone else) as well as
constructive suggestions,will be welcomed. Please send them directly to me

Apologies for potential duplicate emails.
