Reproducing book covers?

Nolo’s Patent, Copyright, and Trademark Blog engages a common type of inquiry:

Dear Rich: I have a question. I’m starting a literary website and I’d like to put up a lot of book covers. Do I have to get permission from the book publishers?

I’m so glad you asked.

And I’m so glad Rich Stim answered! You (and your clients) will be too.
