15.1: Do you need permission to include images in a print museum catalogue that will be sold in a bookstore?

Answer: Yes, you should obtain permission whether or not the catalogue is being sold. The inclusion of the image is a reproduction of that work. In some circumstances, you may be able to imply permission from the circumstances but that would not be in every case. (2009-3)
