Copyright Question about books in film?
I've a short film and there is a lot of books in it. Stacks and stacks in a person's house. But I'm curious if anyone knows, I can't seem to find an answer, about seeing books in film, do I need to have permission to show them?
The books themselves aren't the topic of the film but they are seen quite a bit and you can see the artwork on the covers and famous people's biographies and the likes.
Have I shot myself in the foot or is there fair use clause?
Any help would be great!
PS I live in Ireland
