  The use of stills can be tricky. I have been told that if you ask a
studio for permission, it is VERY EXSPENSIVE. The question is, do you need
their permission ? Most people avoid the problem by useing publicity stills
which the studio/ distrubutor put out themselves and should not require
clearence. If you want a specific image, it may well fall under fair use. I
have never heard of anyone being sued over this,but I am told many
publishers are leery . However I would avoid talking to any studio legal
dept. at all costs.
 
Good Luck
