: I plan on building a tutorial website on photography. I'd like to be able to use some of the pictures of some camera gear from the manufacturer's websites for editorial comment on the gear.
: Also I'd like to post some copyrighted photos to discuss some of the techniques the photographer used to produce the image.
: Would this be covered by Fair Use clause of the copyright law since it will be used for educationl purpose and also for commentary?
My gut says no. I would have to look into the matter, and even possibly do research. I'm not going to take professional responsibilty without being paid for my time. I think you are on the cusp, education or not.
