Wants to Use Sled Dog Photo
What about fair use? Fair use may excuse your reproduction of the photo (you can find a list of photo fair use cases here). Perhaps you can argue that your use is transformative as you are using it to make a pro-dog, anti-Iditarod statement. And it's possible that the nonprofit aspect of your use will work in your favor. But as we regularly point out, fair use can only be decided by a court and most people can't afford to pay the legal fees for that type of resolution. As for attribution, see our previous post.
