Can you use this picture?

In the brave, new world of social media, mashups, and instant information, it becomes very easy to intentionally or unintentionally use the intellectual property of others inappropriately.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have some sort of flow chart, an infographic perhaps, to decide how and when to use images that you might find online?

Thanks to The Visual Communication Guy, there is such a thing. The Guy created a very handy guide that will walk you and your students through the process of deciding whether you should or shouldn’t use a specific image.

      Agreed! And it’s not always easy making the decision – this seems useful.

      Thanks for the re-post!

  2. Love the infographic! I got very “meta” and started asking myself if I could use THIS picture for certain things. It gave me a headache. I wish they had graphics like this for other forms of media as well!

      I did the same thing, you’ll notice I edited the pic down to just a portion! Agreed – 21st century intellectual property is a headache.

      Thanks for the comment!
