Images on this Australia Innovates website are copyright, most to other organisations. The owners of these images have granted permission for teachers and students to download and store them for teaching, research and private study only.

If you wish to use an image on this site in any other way please contact, in writing, the organisation credited in the image caption. Please also check their website for any further information you may need.

Copyright is a collection of economic rights automatically protected by the Australian Copyright Act 1968. Under the Copyright Amendment (Moral Rights) Act 2000 all the stakeholders in any work need to be acknowledged in any reproduction. For instance, the individual photographer, organisation, and possibly the artist (in case there is any artwork within the image that has not passed out of copyright) all need to be credited if you intend to reproduce these photographs in any way, even in the permissible ways listed above.

If you have a choice, it is a good idea to select for reproduction images of objects that are at least 75-100 years old. Any embedded artist's copyright(s) for designs and sculptures in the image are more likely to have passed into the public domain, so that acknowledgement is only required for the photograph. The photographs themselves are, in general, recent, and therefore well in copyright.

In each case first contact the organisation credited in the image caption. Please check their website for contact details and further information.
