Is it possible that my book will not need any permissions? I have no illustrations or photographs, no epigraphs or any other gratuitous quoting, and all of my quotes and references are for the purpose of commentary and analysis. That's fair use, right? Is there anything I'm possibly overlooking?
(My editor referred me to several sites to figure this out, and the conclusion I came to is that it's all fair use--but I want some good old-fashioned anecdotal internet evidence to back up my reasoning. Help me, people!)
