When you create Web materials, treat your creation as an academic product enhanced by graphics and links. That means, like any piece of academic work, all of the text provided on your site should be written by you, and your sources need to be identified in an appended list of references.
The main points:
When posting materials to the web that you yourself did not create, such as pictures, you need to follow copyright guidelines. Links to images already posted by someone else are fine; but if you download any copyrighted images from the web or scan in any from published works, then you must follow the fair use guidelines for copyrighted material. These guidelines are posted at Copyright Issues for WWW on the Rice University website.
