Dear "Bug man":
I am writing to ask permission to use one or more of your images on a web site. The image is of a tortoise beetle. … The site, which is being developed by students in a biology class entitled “Insect fact and folklore”, is an “Insect ABC” with several pages for each letter of the alphabet. The site is strictly for non-profit educational use, and will be geared toward students at the primary school level. You may visit the site (under construction) at:
or see a previous version at:
Please contact me by email, or contact my professor, Dr. Andy McCollum, by phone, fax, mail, or email (contact information below) to grant or deny permission or if you have any questions you want to ask before deciding.
If you are willing to grant blanket permission to allow other students in this class to use images for this web page, or are unable to grant me or any other student in this class student permission, please specify that and we will add your name to the “do not disturb again” list for this class to prevent you from unnecessarily receiving additional requests from this class.
Professor: Dr. Andy McCollum
Department of Biology
Mount Vernon IA 52314
We would be honored to contribute images to your site. We here at What’s That Bug? do not employ the copyright police to patrol the web searching for our images. We like to think of the www as a place to disseminate knowledge. Please link the image back to www.whatsthatbug.com if you don’t mind. You will find that creating more links on your site will put you on the radar with search engines which is how What’s That Bug has gotten so much attention.
