Navigating Image Permissions

This website was developed by Amy Belotti and Julie Hunter to fulfill a final project requirement for the Fall 2012 Film and Media Collections class. This project describes how to secure permissions for still image content. The website is designed and built to navigate users through the appropriate questions to ask regarding public domain, fair use, copyright, and ultimately, how to determine who owns the the rights to an image. The website acts as a tutorial prompting the reader through a series of questions. Answers are given in the form of a “yes” or “no” response, and depending on the response given, users are guided through the necessary steps to find rights holders.
