Hi guys, I want to design a website on which I show my model building. To make it clear to the readers what cabover and what conventionals are, I need 2 original photos, which I can post. As I live in germany I'm unfortunately unable to take photos myself. Can any of you guys help me? To provide photos for me and the permission to use them? Photos of trucks from the 70s or 80s would be nice, thank you!

Do your laws prevent you from pulling photos directly from the web?

There are exceptions to copyright law in the USA that allow limited use of copyrighted material under certain circumstances, and there are several license-free photo sources here as well...that anyone can use without permission.

Under US Copyright "fair use" definitions, the ones that would apply to your use of web-sourced photos to illustrate your non-commercial website would be these two:

  • Research and scholarship: Quoting a short passage in a scholarly, scientific, or technical work for illustration or clarification of the author's observations would be deemed acceptable. An art historian would be able to use an image of a painting in an academic article that analyzes the painting.
  • Nonprofit educational uses: When teachers photocopy limited portions of written works for classroom use, this is normally acceptable. An English teacher would be permitted to copy a few pages of a book to show to the class as part of a lesson plan. (Note that she would not be permitted to photocopy the entire book)

The images below should be free to re-post:

CONVENTIONAL:      Pin on Peterbilt 359
