Using copyrighted materials on blogs

I have an undergraduate student, James, doing a research project in my lab on the synthesis of carbon nanotubes. He has agreed to blog his research experience here.

One of the issues that has come up is that he would like to use figures from journal articles. The first publisher we contacted promptly gave us the green light, subject to author approval:
Permission is granted for the following:
Figure from O. Jessensky, F. Muller, U. Gosele, Applied Physics Letters, Vol 72
(10), 1173-1175, 1998,
to be used on your personal blog.

1. The following credit line must appear in all copies (please fill in the
information indicated by CAPITAL LETTERS): Reprinted with permission from FULL
CITATION. Copyright YEAR, American Institute of Physics.
2. Note: This permission does not apply to figures, tables or other materials
credited to sources other than the copyright holder.
3. Obtain the Author's permission to use the materials. The author's
address can be obtained from the article.
4. Please include a link to the AIP version of the article.

Lets hope it continues to be this easy.
