Hello. I īm new to this website  and I have a question. The rules for uploading worksheets say that watermarked pictures can īt be used. Clip art can be used. And you can use copyrighted pictures with the permission of the creator.
Lately I have seen illustrations from text books and activity books, as well as scanned exercises. I only recognized them because I have used these books  myself. Futhermore, I sometimes used them before to create my own worksheets previous to belonging to this site. Is that permitted? I don īt want to be petty, I īm just curious. I don īt want to be one of those people who report every little thing, I just want the rules to be clean and fair to everyone.
Thank you.

Materials form ESL books are not permitted. Also, anything from a book is copyrighted, so permission must be obtained to use it, if it īs not an ESL book.
