graphics files and writings contained within these pages. It is not
a good idea to take graphics files from sites unless there is a

In the case of computer graphics/animation,
even though the author may have included copyright information, anyone
can put them into a compiler and remove this information.
So, just because you don't
see copyright information on a graphic file don't believe that the work
is not copyrighted.
