Copyright Use

This thread has 2 posts and 632 views.


I have a school project where I have to make a website/web app about a topic and I chose whitewashing and representation in films. I have a silver membership and I was hoping to confirm that it is safe and legal to use movie stills downloaded from this database on my website. The stills used will only be to demonstrate instances of whitewashing and within an academic context. None of this is for commercial use, just to be used in image carousels displaying the history of whitewashing and another carousel showing progress made in Hollywood representation.

I was also wondering what attributions I should use with the images. Should I attribute both MovieStillsDB and the film company the copyright belongs to? Or just the film company?

Please let me know if there is anything else I should do concerning the copyright of the images found on this database. Thank you!

I realize this is an old post but I don't see that it was responded to. For anyone asking, per our copyright notice on the main page of the site: "All stills and photos on this website are the courtesy of their respective production studios and/or distribution companies, and are intended for educational or editorial use only."

Credits and rights belong to those noted above.

Thank you for checking and I apologize for the long-delayed response.
