I see that the picture is listed in pinterest by the user Natalee within the folder Ljubecka. Have you tried contacting this person?
What efforts have you made so far in your search? I ask this so that a duplication of effort is not made by me or others.
PS: Per the pinterest user, the girl is his future wife, Lina Mathilde, nee von Osten, later Manninen. The picture's date was supposedly taken in 1929.
What efforts have I made? I tried to search past all the Pinterest, Deviant Art andother such pages but I did not come across anything. All said something different and gave no further information as to a source.
Are you sure? I was under the impression that this girl was the one Heydrich dumped for Lina. Hence why I am seeking permission to use it as the novel is based around the girl Heydrich dumped for Lina.
Yes that is correct. I would like to use THIS image.
Forgive me please, sometimes I how think a sentence should look, doesn’t look the same when I type it out.. (must be a writers thing maybe?)history1 wrote: ↑26 Nov 2019 18:06
@Herta: It´s obvious that we are trying to help you, hence I don´t understand the need of your first sentence in your last post. I would recommend you do what reliable publishers do, namely state in your book that you were not able to find the copyright holder of this image and ask the reader, if he/she does hold the copyright to contact you as to settle the right of use for this image.
IN this way it is at least visible that you didn´t intent to violate any copyright but your search wasn´t fruitful and your use will be more likely excused. This is for sure cheaper for you than having a copyright holder finding out that you did use it without his/her allowance as the consequence would be the request of the multiple of the right of use - bill for a copyright violation. The right of use calculation depends onto the run, less books is cheaper than many book.
I was going to put a piece in the beginning about how I was unable to locate a copyright holder and if anyone knew the holder to email me on the given address. And if they did not request for me to use it, then I would remove it.
Thank you for all your help, it is truly appreciated. I thought that with everyone on here, it would have been a pretty easy ask but it seems it isn’t. Thank you once again for everyone’s ongoing assistance.
