“When can an artist or art historian use a photo she snapped in a museum for teaching? Can a museum reproduce an image from an exhibition of contemporary art in a related brochure without licensing it? How can fair use simplify the permissions process in publications? Can an archive put images from its collection online—and if so, with what restrictions?”

The College Art Association has created a useful guide to navigating these tricky situations at your site. This 21-page guide and presentation by law professor Peter Jaszi and museum attorney Walter G. Lehmann can help you understand your rights and limitations for sharing images of your collections or exhibits with others, as well as using those from other sites.
