message 1: by Joe (new) - rated it 4 stars

Joe (symphony_red) | 180 comments This was published under the imprint 'Your Coach in a Box' which was owned by Glidan Media which is now itself and imprint of RBMedia.

Here's an image from the Glidan site:

It came from their catalog page (you have to scroll down):

Note that the isbn, 9781469001289, is for the overdrive library edition. Here's a link to a library catalog entry with the same "cover" image:

Joe (symphony_red) | 180 comments Hello -- a little help?

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6177 comments That picture on the publisher page doesn't list the ISBN and we have to verify that we add the cover for exactly that ISBN, so we can't just use that. (on the buy link it leads to a different isbn)
And Overdrive is unfortunately difficult - we are not allowed to take the pictures from their page (their TOS don't allow it) so I'm not sure if we are allowed to take the picture from that library for an overdrive edition ...

Joe (symphony_red) | 180 comments You won't find the isbn on the publisher's site because overrdrive creates their own for their library editions.

Note that the library catalog link I provided contains an image not from overrdrive and that it matches (except slightly lower resolution the image from the publisher, Gildan Media (which is available in the library record which also matches the publication date).

lethe | 13669 comments I'm not sure if it may be used. This is from the terms of use:

The sharing of content is an important objective of the BiblioCommons Service.

Looks like it's not allowed.

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6177 comments Yeah, then we're not able to use it as far as I know because we are commercial here

Joe (symphony_red) | 180 comments I was requesting that you use the image from Gliddan Media, the publisher. I was citing the library catalog entry including the image (which looks the same as the bibliocommons image) as evidence that overdrive-only isbn (used in the library catalog entry) has the same cover art as the isbn in the Gliddan catalog.

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6177 comments We are not allowed to add a cover from a different ISBN number, they are not interchangeable even if they look the same.
(and yes, unfortunately that's a common issue with Overdrive editions)

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6177 comments but: I did find a cover for this edition linked on worldcat and we are generally allowed to use these ...
so I hope that one is okay and won't get reverted because of some other copyright issues I didn't see

Hm I reverted myself because it was from and that seems to belong to overdrive as well I fear ... at least on the general info page about the audio book is a copyright note from overdrive :/
