Giving credit

  • When you use other people’s work you must normally pay them.
  • You can use quotes from other people as long as you use “quote marks” and say who made the quote.
  • You can use images if you have permission from the person who made them, or if they are in the ‘public domain’. Many satellite and space images are in the public domain.
  • Whenever you use an image from somebody else you must say who it came from, in a ‘credit line’.
