What is Public Domain Images?
Items in public domain means that the items is personal creations or works (a.k.a.intellectual property) is which are not owned or controlled by anyone. Usually, the creator gives permission to use their creation any way the public, or you, would like in your own creations (though they may ask that you still credit the location of the public domain item). Public Domain indicates that these items/materials are therefore public property and available for anyone to use for any purpose. Thus, public domain images may be used as you like as long as you read the policy attached to the image and cite accordingly.
Assume that all art, photos, and text are copyrighted (unless there is a clear statement that they are in the “public domain” and available for free use). Projects should NOT be published on a web site without permission from the copyright holder. If permission is received, it should be stated on a credit line near the item and consent filed for verfication if needed.
Logos and many graphics are trademarked. There is no “fair use” exception for these, so permission must be obtained before they may be used in electronic publishing.
