Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for the Visual Arts

"This code is based on a consensus of professionals in the visual arts who use copyrighted images, texts and other materials in their creative and scholarly work and who, through discussion groups, identified best practices for using such materials. They included art and architectural historians, artists, designers, curators, musuem directors, educators, rights and reproduction officers, and editors at scholarly publishers and journals." DeWitt Godfrey, Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for the Visual Arts

Intellectual Property Rights (PR) and Copyright: Resources Providing Guidance on Academic Use of Images

"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 (vraweb.org) believes fall within the U.S. doctrine of fair use. The six uses are: 1) preservation (storing images for repeated use in a teaching context and transferring images to new formats); 2) use of images for teaching purposes; 3) use of images (both large, high-resolution images and thumbnails) on course websites and in other online study materials; 4) adaptations of images for teaching and classroom work by students; 5) sharing images among educational and cultural institutions to facilitate teaching and study; and 6) reproduction of images in theses and dissertations."
