Hello Don: I happen to need a picture of the Via Lactea (Milky way?) to build something for my user page, I wonder whether I could use NASA pictures without having to ask for permission. What do you think I have to do? Regards LO--Luis A. Ordóñez V. 00:17, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
I think you can use any downloadable NASA image as long as you are not selling it. I will ask on your behalf and post again. Sorry it took me so long to respond! Don
I was right. Here is the answer I got from my JPL/NASA contact:
"Yes, as long as the user gives NASA credit for the photo. JPL's Image Use Policy is at: http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/imagepolicy/
That site references the NASA Image Use Policy if the photo is from another center."
Bye for now,
