Using Internet Images
You can copy and paste or link to Publicly Available Material (PAM) from the internet as long as it is for educational purposes and you follow the conditions below.
- you have to cite the material
- you can’t use the material if there is a lock on the website, like a password preventing the general public from accessing it
- you can’t use the material if there is a “clearly visible notice” saying you cannot use the material and has to be more than merely a copyright symbol “©”
- you can’t use the material if you know (or can logically guess) it was posted online without the consent of the copyright owner
