On the one hand, LT does say that copyright is taken seriously and that permission should be obtained. On the other hand, failure to do so is not a basis for flagging the image. ("Rather than using member moderation of image copyright, LibraryThing now relies on the instruments and protections of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). ")
I think you are safe in uploading the author image, just indicate in the "credit" line where you found it. When I use an image the photographer of which is not listed, I say "Uncredited photo found at . . .")
But that's just my opinion!
Thank you. I wouldn't have a clue as to where to begin seeking permission in this instance, but I was becoming disposed to be emboldened by the freedom we assume to upload front cover images which are equally someone's work and I presume equally subject to copyright. Anyone who wishes to know what Seton Peacey looked like can now do so: somebody may, one day.
Thanks. I'd done so in the Copyright section but have now added to the publicly visible description.
Plus, I think a strong case could be made that this usage falls under the "fair use" provisions of U.S. copyright law. If it was published elsewhere, different rules may apply, of course.
