Copyrighting Q&A pt 2

1.)  Can I use images I locate in a Google search online in a school report?

If the creator or the thing the picture is of ( mueseum or zoo,etc.) will let you, yes.

2.)  If something is not copyright can I use it without permission?

Ask yourself:

Does it deprive the original artist from making a  profit?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

Is it for a non-profit educational purpose?

Are you only using a little?

If “yes” to all, you can. Also, look for thye copyright sign.

3.)  Is there a special permission given to students for school reports?

Yes, a little. If it is for educational purposes you have an advantage, you can use music and photos. But list your sources and/or the original creator.

 4.)  Can I post my report on my blog or webpage from school if it contains a copyright image that gives credit to the author?

When you put stuff on your blog, it is public, so everyone can see it. If you have copyrighted stuff, besides stuff for projects, it is no longer fair use.
