How do I get permission to use futurama pics or is there somewhere I can get free pics?

Anyone with any ideas please reply.

Thanks,

That depends on how you want to use them and what pictures you mean.

If you need them for self made merchandise you would need to confirm that with the FOX network since they hold the copyrights to Futurama.

For a fan-webpage the Fox network is a little more mild mannered, as long as you use a disclaimer to it and don't do anything offensive to them, i.e. offering downloads of their copyrighted material.

If you mean pictures that other fans made - fanart - you need to ask these people whether you could use it.

Other PEELers that actually run a webpage, such as our admins, or winna, Teral, Leandro, aslate,... probably know more about that.

You can find loads of different pictures from Futurama and screenshots from the show you have full permission to use, on our affiliated site 'Can't Get Another Futurama', I use it for all the episode grabs requirements here on PEEL   smile Here is the link mate: www.gotfuturama.com  explore and enjoy!     big grin

I would be a little more careful with the word "full permisison" here. You still need at least mArc's or slimmy's permission on using them on other webpages and it is still prohibited to use that stuff for trading.
These framegrabs are free to use here, since they are hosted on the same server and the staff of CGEF is the same as PEEL's.

See CGEF's disclaimer:

Thanks for all of your help.

The pictures I was referring to are official pictures and posters, so would I have to contact Fox for that and if so do know how to contact them?

I would like to use the pictures in an internal school project, so would that be along the same lines as a website?

Thanks again,

ravenblade

It should be ok to use them for a school project. Maybe if you want to be correct about it write a small disclaimer into the footnotes like:

"pics xys : All Characters and designs are copyrighted by FOX and Couriosity Company".

But generally, since you are not making money with it, it should be ok to use them without direct permission.

Yeah, I can't imagine anyone taking the effort to give half a hoot if you aren't putting 'em on T-shirts and selling them or otherwise making money. The Man only takes an interest in us lowly mortals if we try to make our way in the world, then it's all wrath and hurting.
Hotlinking some JPEGS ain't gonna raise no eyebrows. Might not be strictly legal, but it's the kind of illegal nobody gives a damn about - like running over neo-Nazis in your Toyota. Ahhh, those were the days...

Sorry to break it to you, I'm not sure about Futurama sites, but I know of a few Simpsons sites that tried to contact Fox for permission to use a few images and they've actually been sent C&D's from Fox's lawyers (and in case anyone asks, no those sites did not have episode downloads).

Yeah, Fox is evil. If you ask it only gives them the opening to threaten you. Don't ask, don't tell, just DO, and use an alias.
