A: This is largely based on whether or not something is already deemed “fair use.”
Some things to remember about images:
- Use for an educational presentation in a not-for-profit setting typically constitutes fair use. The user does not need to get permission but must cite the image appropriately.
- Use on a website requires permission from the copyright holder (this is most often the publisher, not the author).
- In a work-to-be-published, you need permission from the copyright holder and may be required to pay a fee.
- Use of patient photos on either the internal or external site requires written permission. Getting permission from non-patients to use their photos is recommended.
