  • Hey! I've recently started to contribute to Scandinavian Voice-Over Wiki, and I want to add images to some of the pages. But I wonder about copyright issues. If I find a picture of, say, an actor online, can I just post  it, or do I need permission? English isn't my first language, so please explain to me in a simple way.;)

    • That depends on the source of the image.

    • OK, are there any general rules as to what needs permission?

    • Again, it depends on the source. However, for images of actors, I am going to guess a minimum of crediting the original photographer. Depending on the specifics, even that might not be enough. Some require written permission (which may also come with a usage fee).

    • Probably most DMCA's Wikia gets (that aren't DeviantArt people) are about headshots of actors/real world people. They don't fall under Fair Use like a screenshot would.
