Copyright and Fair Use

What does copyright mean? This means that unless images are in the public domain, everything that is published online or in print is protected by Copyright Law and copying images without explicit permission may not be permitted.

What does fair use mean? Fair use is an exception to the protection of  U.S. copyright law. It allows for limited use of images without obtaining permission from the author or owner. This type of copying is considered "fair" and is applicable for teaching, scholarship, or research.
