    Internet copyright law says that when a website is created
    it is considerd published, so technically all graphics, and
    content on a webpage are copywrighted automatically when
    uploaded to a server. Now, publishing something publicaly
    its obviouse people are gonna use it, so its reasonable for
    you to use it as long as your not selling anything or
    benifiting financially from the image. Educations sites, are
    usally internet copyright exceptions. So unless stated that
    its not free for use, you can use it. If worst comes to
    worst, i'm sure all they would do is e-mail you and ask you
    to remove it. But you have a resonable expectation for
    athurized use, so its cool.
