Re: Is it OK to "steal" pictures for school reports, etc?

In the US, the answer is is that it's likely to be considered "fair use."

Should there be some attribution?  Maybe.  Much would depend on the nature of the use.  Clearly as one moves into academia or business, etc., it becomes more necessary to know about attribution and how to reference work, what one can do to use sources and why one shouldn't present someone else's work as your own.  A first grader grabbing a picture of an elephant is hardly the same as a college student directly copying work.
