Using Copyright Materials in My Thesis or Dissertation

The use of any material created and/or previously published by others usually requires permissions to use in your ETD. This includes material that you have published previously, images found on the web, figures from a report by a foreign government, tables from a process manual, and more. It is usually better to assume that you need permissions. The permissions process can look very different depending on whether you are the author of the previously published material.
