What are the legalities of using screenshots

I have been wondering about this for some time, can someone please give me their take on it please.

If I was to make an information product to sell, what are the legalities of using screenshots to demonstrate a particular point.

As an example: If I was talking about Clickbank and wanted to make a point about gravity and I took a shot from within the marketplace showing the gravity on a particular listing.

Does this infringe on copyright?

It seems that just about every information product you buy these days have some screenshots in them.

    AFAIK, some companies permit screenshots according to terms that they specify. Those terms won't always be readily available, so you'll need to ask for them.

    Yeah always best to ask. However in general I find that companies are quite relax where you are positively promoting their product or service but less so if you are criticising it!
