Good Day. I was hoping to find out whether I will need to obtain permission to use online images for my masters dissertation? I am using product pictures from the respective websites and I am not sure whether the publication of a Stellenbosch University Masters thesis infringes on copyright of the images.

Dear Tim

Thank you for the question. Generally, you will need permission, especially also because the thesis will be available on the Internet (SUNScholar). You can also contact Mrs Carol Kat, who deals with copyright issues at Stellenbosch University. Her e-mail: carolk@sun.ac.za.

On 2 August, there is also a presentation: 'Copyright issues in thesis and dissertation writing', presented by Carol Kat - this may also be very useful to attend. To register for this presentation, you can see http://library.sun.ac.za/en-za/Learning/Pages/training-postgrads.aspx

Do let me know, should you require any further assistance.

Kind regards
