Images and GraphicsOur guidance about the use of images and graphics as fair use is affected significantly by the fourth fair use factor. It is often difficult or even impossible to get permission to use images and graphics. This situation is changing in some fields where it is now possible to license databases of good quality images at reasonable prices for nonprofit educational uses. For example, Saskia and other art history image vendors offer educational licenses. If it is easy to license the right to use the images you need, you should do so. But, for images for which a digital source is not readily available, or for which permission is difficult or impossible to obtain, use of images without permission in an educational document like a dissertation is probably a fair use. Again, you should document any efforts you make to obtain permission.“Fair Use Guidelines for Dissertations” from University of Texas at http://www.utexas.edu/ogs/etd/fair_use.html

STATEMENT ON FAIR USE OF IMAGES FOR TEACHING, RESEARCH & STUDY http://www.vraweb.org/organization/pdf/VRAFairUseGuidelinesFinal.pdf Historically, graduate students have not obtained permissions. However, as theses have been posted to online repositories, owners/operators have often required that students obtain all copyright permissions (as a way of managing their own risks). As a result, students are required to address copyright issues to obtain their academic degrees. VRA Statement argues for Fair Use regarding the inclusion of images in dissertations & theses.
