  • Images are protected by copyright law. Always check the Terms and Conditions of the website where you located the image to check whether you can reuse freely, or how to obtain permission to reuse it.
  • Once you publish a work, be it a short story, a scientific article or a novel, you sign off the copyright to the publisher. Even you as the author can no longer freely make copies to distribute. Permission is needed.
