copyright on old ad photos

I'm writing a book and would like to use some photography that I've found in magazine ads and old company advertising brochures.  In at least one of these cases, the subject company is no longer in business.  I had seen some advice suggesting that these photos could be considered available for use without permission because of something called "implied license."  Does that sound right?
 
Any input would be appreciated.  Thank you.

Does not sound right to me.   Sounds like copyright infringement.

What you do is take an original photo of whatever you are mentioning here.
 
Then it is original art.
 
And there is no problemo. Right?
