This is utterly, totally incorrect.  There is a great deal of pirated
material on the Web, especially visual images, and using it with
acknowledgement does nothing more than compound the crime.  Even where
there is display of owned images by the owners, it is still
impermissible for someone else to download and duplicate, or print out
and duplicate, those images without permission.

There are qualifications and cavils and open issues on the fringes of
the matter, as with so many intellectual property issues, but basically
that's the Pole Star to steer by.
