From everything I read you need the person's permission to use any copyrights and they are usually pretty decent about it especially if you offer to put a link on that page that will take others to their sites in return!

If it says copyright then it means that you must contact the person who created the picture and ask for their permission to use it.

Thank you for wanting to help ralahinn1, but I posted this question long time ago and I just decided to not use the image. (and I did not get any messages on Yahoo ! Answers)

Lol, I answered a question from someone who says his site is"animestarr.co.nr". I'll put a general answer here on images. Most of they images that you find on the internet you can use as long as you give credit to the owner of the images( if known). Some companies restrict use of some images on"paid" sites. Big companies( like Square Enix) keep a tight reign on most of their copy rights, and if you violate it( and they don't like it) you might get a "cease and desist " letter telling you to remove it.( my daughter got notice that something she made for a website was the property of a certain company, but they allowed her to keep it up). Most places will work with you when it comes to posting things. Always know for sure who you are dealing with though, because I have heard of some cases where someone told a site to take down something they had up, but they weren't the copyright holders, just some jelous members of another website.
