Is it legal to use images from other websites if they are not copyrighted? Please explain the rules and exceptions.

Using images from other websites without permission can be considered copyright infringement, even if they are not explicitly labeled as copyrighted.

The Berne Convention grants automatic copyright protection to all creative works, regardless of whether a copyright notice is included or not.

Images labeled as open-source or Creative Commons licensed can often be used freely, but it is still important to verify the licensing terms and conditions.

Seeking permission from the copyright holder before using an image is always the best course of action.

"Public domain" images are those that are no longer protected by copyright and can be used freely without seeking permission.

Websites like Unsplash, Pexels, Flickr's Public Domain Group, and Pixabay offer a wide variety of public domain images.

When searching for images online, using the "Tools" or "Filter" option and selecting "Usage Rights" or "License" can help filter images by different types of licenses.

Images on the Library of Congress's website may also be in the public domain and free to use.

Financially supporting image authors and respecting their work shows ethical use of images.

Contacting the owner of the material to purchase partial or full usage rights is always an option.

Images on Google Images can be searched by image using the camera icon and either pasting an image URL or uploading an image to search with.

If the original source of the image is still in doubt, approaching the owners of the websites where the image was found and asking them for the source is recommended.

Legally using copyrighted images requires either obtaining permission or finding alternative sources.

Alternative sources for using images legally online include public domain images, creative commons licensed images, and stock photography websites.

Stock photography websites may offer free or paid options for using images, depending on the website's terms and conditions.

When using images from social media, it is important to verify the source and obtain permission if necessary.
