Designing Documents: Using Illustrations

Borrowing Illustrations

If you find an Illustration in an existing publication or on the World Wide Web, and you'd like to use it in a published report, journal article, magazine article, newspaper, presentation, other communication, or post it on a Web site, obtain permission from the copyright holder.

In a few cases, Illustrations may be in the public domain--i.e., produced by a government agency. You can usually use them without permission, but be careful. Some government publications may be copyrighted, so do seek permission before you use any Illustrations from them.
