I'm writing an e-book, which is supposed to generate leads in the following way:
- People visit my landing page.
- There, they see a text like "Enter your e-mail address and get this e-book for free".
- Those, who entered and confirmed their membership, receive the e-book.
- As long as they haven't unsubscribed, they also receive several e-mails in the following weeks with information related to the e-book and the product I'll sell to them. The purpose of those e-mails is to make the subscriber to contact me and tell me what he or she liked/disliked about my offering (sort of market research).
- Based on the responses from the list members, I create and sell products.
Even though the e-book is free, it's a for-profit thing.
In that e-book I have this passage:
There used to be a Russian management guru, Georgii Petrovich Shchedrovitski, who argued that there are two fundamentally different kinds of knowledge work:
1) Science, which looks for sameness.
2) Activity, which looks for differences.
Thereafter follows a detailed explanation of his theory.
Is it legal (under US laws) to include a picture of G. P. Shchedrovitski from Wikipedia in this e-book?
