Hi. I am glad if I could be some help.
But again, please be reminded that I am not a lawyer, and this is just
my personal thoughts. I might well be wrong.
Your modified statement with a footnote looks better to me, thought
your list of authors does not match with what I see on the page you pointed..
If the screenshot is small enough, I would assume it would be likely to qualify
as a fair use.
I also noticed that on the photo index page that you will use,
there is a photo of a person with his face clearly identifyable. Is that okay
with regard to the person's privacy? I don't know
much about the issue, but if I remember correctly, CC licenses does not
guarantee that privacy and other rights are cleared.
Also, if you are talking about a chapter in an academic book, will the image be
included into any subscription-based database?
If so, couldn't that be a violation of another clause of the CC-license?
It is perhaps not your issue, but the publisher of the journal might want to read the
license.. The license says:
"You may not distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, or publicly digitally
perform the Work with any technological measures that control access or use of the
Work in a manner inconsistent with the terms of this License Agreement."
