Under the Borne convention rules, pictures (And other works) are copyrighted from the moment they are created, unless stated otherwise. This applies to everyone except government agencies - stuff they create falls under public domain, usually.
Unless you see otherwise, always assume an image is copyrighted, because it probably is.
Casey Luskin - a lawyer, knows this. He used a copyrighted image anyway, without even bothering to check the URL in the image.
We have a legal term for that - its called outright stupidity.
This is the law in the US, at least. And in many other Borne convention countries.
This post, for example, is copyright Me. Right Now. No need to register anything. (Assuming I didn't agree to hand them over to the board, which I don't remember doing, but don't really care if I did) Of course, fair use allows a pretty wide usage.
To rebut creationism you pretty much have to be a biologist, chemist, geologist, philosopher, lawyer and historian all rolled into one. While to advocate creationism, you just have to be an idiot. -- tommorris
