Re: Question about book covers

meh, 'fair use' is weird. EA hates the concept, and if they notice they will be nasty.
On the other hand, they are stupid and unobservant, and frankly wrong. But when lawyers get involved, wrong doesn't matter. Law doesn't matter.
I'd say it will be fine unless EA sends a CDL. At that point, they are sticking a gun with a lawyer attached in your face, and unless you are a billionaire, the law is meaningless, you lose.
