Q:This is a very beautiful site. I am preparing a commercial product for high school physics. Can I use the images from this site into my commercial product?
Hi! Thanks! I fear it’s not that easy. Many of the images are coming from sites with a Creative Commons License and hence inherit the same (NonCommercial) license. Many others has copyright, and I use them within rights granted under 17 USC § 107 (fair use: for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research). Since (almost) all images at Science is Beauty include the source (and credit), I suggest that you go to the original quoted sources to find out about their use, or to apply for commercial use. Good luck!
