This Statement on the Fair Use of Images for Teaching, Research, and Study describes six uses of copyrighted still images that the Visual Resources Association (www.vraweb.org) believes fall within the U.S. doctrine of fair use.
The following six uses are:
1. Use of images for teaching purposes.
2. Use of images (both large, high-resolution images and thumbnails) on password protected course websites and in other online study materials restricted to students and faculty at Brooklyn College.
3. Adaptation of images for teaching and classroom work by students.
4. Sharing images among educational and cultural institutions to facilitate teaching and study.
5. Reproduction of images in theses and dissertation
6. Preservation (storing images for repeated use in a teaching context and transferring images to new formats.
For fair use of images as well as use of images for other purposes, please consult the Digital Image Rights Computator http://www.vraweb.org/resources/ipr/dirc/
Created by the Visual Resources Association, this interactive program guides you through a series of questions addressing five variables:
1. The copyright status of the underlying work represented in the image.
2. The copyright status of the photographic reproduction.
3. The specific source from which you have obtained the image under consideration.
5. The intended use(s) of the image.
