    I am sitting in a tech class right now and we just reviewed
    copyright laws. It is okay to have your students post
    pictures they downloaded from the web as long as they are
    only posted on an internal server. They cannot be posted on
    public servers, that would be breaking fair use guidelines.
    The internal servers would ask for a password. Hope that
    info helps!
