SETI League Photos: Fair Use Policy

The SETI League's online Press Kit contains hundreds of downloadable, reproducible, high-resolution images. Those images to which The SETI League holds copyright are available for scholarly or academic use, non-profit distribution, and journalistic publication, provided proper credit is given. The following terms and conditions apply:
  1. The SETI League Fair Use Policy applies solely to scholarly, academic, non-profit, or journalistic use of its images. Commercial use of all SETI League intellectual property is strictly prohibited, except by prior arrangement.

  2. To obtain authorized SETI League images, browse the various directories of our Photo Gallery, and select the image which best suits your needs.

  3. Please select for reproduction only those photos labeled "SETI League photo." We display a number of our members' images, for which we do not own copyright.

  4. The SETI League makes no charge for the use of our photos. However, we are always pleased to accept tax-deductible contributions and honoraria.

  5. To download an image, click on its thumbnail. The full image may be saved to your local hard drive using the "Save As" option from the File pulldown on your Web browser. Some browsers and operating systems will also allow you to save an image by pointing at it and clicking with the right mouse button. Do not attempt to right-click directly on the thumbnail, as that will save the thumbnail, rather that the full image.

  6. Credit all photos used as "SETI League photo, used by permission."

  7. You may use the captions accompanying each image, with appropriate credit.

  8. Any article utilizing our images must contain a reference to The SETI League Web site ( In the case of SETI League images posted to other Web sites, the image itself should be made a hot-link back to The SETI League. Here's a sample piece of html code which will accomplish that task:

    <a href=""> <img src="filename.gif" alt="Picture Name"></a>

  9. We require that you send us three (3) copies of any publication incorporating our images. Please send copies to The SETI League, Inc., PO Box 555, Little Ferry NJ 07643.

  10. Email any questions to our Executive Director, n6tx @

  11. These terms and conditions shall have the force and effect of Bylaws of The SETI League, Inc. They may be amended as necessary from time to time by the Board of Trustees of The SETI League, Inc. Amendments or revisions shall become effective as of the date of their posting to the World Wide Web site of The SETI League, Inc.
