Copyright and Images



Engaging students and enhancing instruction with rights-cleared images


Is it Really OK?

  • Not all images on the web may be used in presentations. Many images are copyrighted and require the permission of the copyright holder to use.
  • Images that are available for use should be cited (&/or attributed), just as you would cite an article you retrieved from an online database.
  • You must abide by any conditions that the author has placed on the use of the image.
  • If in doubt about whether or not you can use an image, don't use it.
