I saw this neat Samus picture on the homepage of http://www.metroid-database.com/ . I don't know if I'll stealing or not, but I am hoping to download that picture as an avatar. That is Samus for this Smash Bros. game. Would it be stealing? Thanks.

Generally that would fall within fair use. As long as you don't claim the character or artwork as your own, using the picture as an avatar should be fine. If you're particularly paranoid, you can cite the source of the image.

Nope. It's to like you are trying to make money on the picture. Go ahead.

Yeah as long as you dont claim it as your or try to make money off of it you shouldn't get in trouble. If you want you can always cite the site you got it from in your signature. Than again if you are really that worried you could not use it all.
