Fair Use, as defined by the US Copyright Office, indicates that a specific work of art may be used one time only (i.e., as a handout for one semester of a specific class or in one PowerPoint lecture). If the work is posted online, it must be available only to students enrolled in the class (such as password protection). References: "Chapter 11 Subject Matter and Scope of Copyright" at http://www.copyright.gov/title17/92chap1.pdf
and Circular 21, “Reproduction of Copyrighted Works by Educators and Librarians” at http://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ21.pdf
In the interests of assisting educators with their mission, I am choosing to allow free, ongoing use in PowerPoint presentations (any image) and free, ongoing use of 1-2 images in classroom handouts and on class-related web pages. Name credit, copyright notice, and a link to my website must be included. Fees will be charged for using more than 2 illustrations for non-PPT, ongoing purposes and for preparing and sending files when requested.
FYI, I've only once or twice had someone agree to pay a fee for me to send an image for such purposes. Most of the time they'd rather limit the # of illustrations they use or grab a low res version off my site than pay up.

Good Morning All,
I have a request, through my web site, from a PhD candidate for use of a copyright illustration for powerpoint presentations.
Any guidance on pricing? Thank you very much indeed! Best,
