I've managed to sort out my main map issue!

Now I'm wondering about this map - http://www.casebook.org/official_documents/map/ - specifically the murder scenes selections noted at the bottom of the page. I'd like to use a couple of them in my book if possible but again, not a clue about the copyright situation. I'm assuming I could, but *holds head in hands* who knows?

If I recall correctly (IIRC) that picture surfaced when somebody from the Chapman family gave it to author Neal Shelden. He was researching the victims, was in touch with somebody from the family and again, IIRC, he couldn't believe it when this family person turned up with the photo. I don't think the provenance could be any better.

Good luck with the book DarkPassenger. I recently listened to a podcast, and I was already aware of the book, about Arthur Conan Doyle being these authors' suspect and the reasons given I wouldn't even call the most flimsiest of circumstantial evidence. I almost made a post here about how I annoyed it made me as there was nobody in the house at the time to vent my feelings to. I say authors as the book is by two people. I think both are doctors. At least one of them is. If my doctor came out with such a book I'd question his sanity and move to another doctor.

It appears the mortuary photos of the victims are all public domain in the UK. This really is a tricky topic.

Hi Dark Passenger

I can't confidently help you directly with your question, but I have a suggestion. I'm a member of an online writers site which has many published and self published authors. Copyright is only one of the issues you will have to navigate. They are a generous bunch on that site and you might find it useful to join and ask them to share their experience, which they happily will.

The site is scribophile.com and you can join for free - though there is also a paid membership option if you wish. You'll find support around covers, publishing, how amazon works etc... and you might find a beta reader (if you haven't already found one). Agents on the site should be able to help with copyright, though when it has come up before they tend to end with - this is general advice - get a legal eagle to check it out before you publish.
