Images and Copyrights
There are tons of images on the Web these days, and it's difficult to know if the images are available for use from the Website or the photographer. And all too often, people simply take them thinking they're free or they'll consider something if and when they're caught using the images illegally. To which I'll say, any use without permission is illegal, with only one exception, which is the public domain.
The public domain is the US or any State government. And unless so noted in the credit in or with the photo, and you should read that carefully, any image from a government Website is free and open for your use except marketing it as yours or for commercial gain. If the image has a credit to a specific person, then you have to get their permission since it's not in the public domain but on loan.
Ok, having said all that, what applies here to my images? Very simple, as stated by the Picture Archive Council of America in their Copyright-Commandments, which are very clear, is that all the images are under copyright to me and permission and possible compensation, is required.
