Tutorial Book Permissions

Previous topic - Next topic


Hi, Scribus community,
I have been using Scribus for several years now, off and on, and I love it. (Versions 1.3.3, 1.3.4, and 1.4.1 - have loaded 1.4.3 but not used it yet), on Windows (mostly XP, but moving to 7). I've published books between 60 and 280 pages long, without much problem, and that is one of the reasons why I love this software. (I won't plug my books here.)

My question: (finally!) I'd like to put together a how-to book, with screenshots, and was wondering, Do I need permission to include the screenshots?

I've seen several books on the market, but didn't notice anything on their copyright pages indicating permissions. (Also only one showed me screenshots, so I'm not even sure if the others have them or not.)

Thanks! This is my first post, but I'll be back. The forum looks great.
