The Galileo Project contains many images. Currently, the use of images in Internet resources is a matter of debate and discussion. We are making a good-faith effort to obey copyright laws. Some of the images used in this project are out of copyright, so permission is unnecessary. Those of the scientific instruments in the Museo di Storia della Scienza in Florence are used by courtesy of the museum, as are the images of Galileo's villa Il Gioiello in Arcetri. For the remaining images, we have contacted the copyright holders in order to secure permission. If you notice that we have erred on a copyright or if you are the owner of a copyright and have not yet received our request for permission, please contact us.
