Screenshots and linking

← Return to forum

  • Hello,

    I have a question that I am getting conflicting answers to. If I want to include a screenshot of a website and then link to that website on my own site (for educational purposes) do I need permission to link to that site?

  • You never need permission to link. A screenshot is more problematic; I think a Fair Use analysis is your best bet there. If you are just using it as an example and if it's fairly low-res, you're probably safe.
