Using Images

This information is NOT intended to offer or substitute for legal advice. It is intended to provide information and guidance in the application of the U.S. copyright law.

Copyright protects digital items just as it does non-digital ones. However, in the digital environment it can be very difficult to see what copyright or license applies and even more difficult to track down a creator to ask for permission.

So what can you do?

  • Use images and media with stated licenses.
  • See if your use qualifies as fair use or a subject to the classroom use exception
    You will still need to provide citation information to give proper credit to your sources.
  • Create your own images or media.
    Thanks to technology, creating your own images and media is easier than ever before. 
  • Purchase the rights to use images or media.
    There are many sites where you can pay to be able to use images, videos, etc. We recommend pursuing the other three options first!
