What can I do ?

If you want to copy an image such as a painting, photograph, map, graphic or cartoon, you need permission.

Even if you are only copying part of an image, if the part you are using is recognisable as being from the original image, you probably need permission to use it.

If you are copying the work as part of your homework or for a class assignment, you often won’t need to get permission but if you want to use the work in other ways, for instance, by entering the work into a competition or exhibiting your work publicly (such as on the internet), you will need to get permission from the copyright owner.
