Do I need permission if I use an image from the Internet?

Yes, you will need to find out the status of the image and find out who owns the copyright (this may be the photographer, artist, agency, museum, or library). You will then need to get permission from the copyright holder to reproduce the image in a journal article.

Taylor & Francis urge authors to exercise caution with any image downloaded from the Internet, e.g. from Wikipedia, Google, or facebook, where images are frequently posted without the knowledge or permission of the copyright holder, and are quickly removed if the copyright holder raises an objection.
