Re: Is this use fair?



From: RUPS@wmich.edu (Pamela Rups)

This is one of the issues I deal with on a regular basis and this is how I
would handle it.  If you are showing the images only as part of a class lecture
and not including them in handouts to the students, you *should* be OK.  I
would also attempt to contact the artists for their OK, too. This shouldn't be
very difficult since the web pages you are visiting should have contact
information on them.

You may NOT, however, include them on any web pages, instructional or
otherwise, which you produce without the persmission of the artists.  Putting
things on the Web is usually considered the same thing as publishing, and you
can't include other people's work in a book without their permission.  If,
however, the Web page is password restricted AND up only for the duration of
the class being taught, say one semester, then you could probably safely
include the images.  I'd still get the artists' persmission, though.
