Fair use, copyright, and introduction to using images

Fair use, copyright, and introduction to using images | Digital Learning - beyond eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

You can’t just use any image you like in a blog post.

 

Why? Because unless stated otherwise, the law automatically grants full “copyright” over any creative work a person makes.

 

I’m sure you’re probably thinking it is okay because as educators, we have a few more flexible rules, called “Fair Use”, to play by. Fair use, in some cases, if an image, text, video, etc. is being used for educational purposes, means you may have more flexible copyright rules.
