So I have done some rudimentary research into the copyright surrounding using images from the web. I am planning to develop a website of informative nature (not aiming to sell anything). I want to provide a unique collection of information that I don't believe has been done yet. I would like to use images to support the text I provide and to educate and inform the viewer. I am unsure of where I sit. Either - Using the image for educational purposes AND using it sparingly (once for the relevant text). "Yes if you are using an image in an educational or research setting, for limited non-profit uses you are usually safe to use the image without permission." Or - publishing the image in a fact-based context: "Possibly. On a case-by-case basis, an image may be safe to use under fair use laws if the image is published in a non-biased way in order to inform or educate the public for the public's good." Am I right in thinking that fair use copyright applies in this case?
