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?

...the heading of "fair use".  Either way, I'd have no qualms about doing so, and would not mind in the least if someone used my photos for this purpose.  Others, however, probably feel differently.

I'd use the photos but then attribute them to the source.

It's nice to say that nice pictures are nice.
