My first grader is doing a report on eagles.  We were thinking of printing a few pictures from some websites to use in the project.   But then I got thinking, is this photo theft or a copyright violation?  Isn't there some provision made for educational use?

Or I guess another question might be, would you be angry if you found out someone used a picture you had taken for a school project?

I agree with GB on this, it's probably Fair Use. A source for photos is Wikipedia, all photos posted are under a Creative Commons Attribution Share Alike license.

Many of the photos on Flickr may be used under one of the Creative Commons licenses, as are mine on pBase.
