Some people mistakenly believe that they can properly use any image they see on the Internet in any way they like. In fact, however, rights-protected images - including all of the images on this website - can be viewed on screen, but cannot be legally used in any other way whatsoever without prior written permission from the owner of the copyright.

- Any type of use of a copyrighted image -- including saving the image digitally, electronically, or in analog form, copying or printing the image, electronically linking the image, altering or manipulating the image, and/or making a "derivative use" of the image -- requires the prior written permission of the copyright holder of the original image.
- An artist's rendering of a photographic image in another medium is a derivative use of an image and therefore requires the prior written permission of the copyright owner of the original image.
- Re-creating a photographic image is a derivative use and therefore requires the prior written permission of the copyright owner of the original image.
- Altering an image and/or combining it with other images or text are derivative uses and therefore require the prior written permission of the copyright owner of the original image.
