Pictures, Images and Photos

Overview

So how do you know when you can use something – an image, design, piece of music, art, photograph, text, etc. - to help promote and enhance your piece of the IWU portal? There is no easy answer, other than this broad statement: If you didn't create it, don't use it - unless you have permission. Copyright law is complicated and a more complete description with tips and guidelines will appear on this page soon. The links below will take you to websites that are robust in their explanations of copyright. For specific questions, contact marketing@indwes.edu
