Copyright law protects art, photography, and other images on generally the same terms that the law protects all other forms of original works. Questions often arise about the general nature of copyright in this context, as well as fair use and the appropriate uses of protected images in connection with teaching, research, and other activities. These images might range from classic works of art to photographs to drawings of medical procedures. Regardless of their type, copyright issues arise for all of these works.
