Basically, unless it is an image, work or design, that is in the public domain or is provided with a creative commons license, it is a copyrighted work. Although fair use protects some works that you can use in your instructional materials, I prefer to use materials that are either Creative Commons or in the public domain. This models the ethical use of materials for my students.
