Default Copyright question -Use of reviews

Our company has developed a program where we take reviews from a
specific publication and reprint them and place them on store shelves
for review by the general public. These shelf tags help the consumer
determine the best value.

Our question is, do we need the companies permission to use their
reviews? If we use quotation marks and attribute the review to them,
do we need to obtain permission from them to use the review?

Almost any good (C)opyright bug includes language, "reprint by permission
only" or some paraphrase of that. The internet is an interesting situation,
as links are freely used without anything more than the very links
attribution to source, pointing the user directly at the copyrighted
material.

I'm sure a lawyer has or will attempt to make some issue out of this in the
future, though I don't see any judge going along with an anti-link (without
permission) ruling at law.

Maybe you can direct us to a good copywright attorney that will
actually stand by an opinion.
