    Well, seeing that the WWE/WWF is really just a business, I'm gonna guess that you'd have to go to them for such material. The material on their website is prohibited for use on commerical and non-commercial sites, so it seems like they have a pretty tight grip on their trademarks.

    Anyone who displays, reproduces, copies, creates derivative works or sells our textual, photographic, video or audiovisual programs for commercial or non-commercial purposes without permission from WWE violates the copyright laws and is liable for copyright infringement.
    From the Terms of Use on their homepage. Seems like even if you find pictures on other sites, you can't use them, because it's the WWE's trademark, and you need their permission to display it. Kinda makes making a fan page a little difficult. :disappointed:

    If you really wanted, grab a digital SLR camera and go to a match...they can't do much about that

    Usually things that have a huge fan base have certain fan packs for downloading. They usually have fan based site approved pics and the like.

    I think this page brings to light a little more of the situation. WHAT? Provides clarity. WHAT? Gives a better understanding. WHAT? I am trying VERY hard to maintain my composure.

    Down at the bottom, they have an email address you can contact: permission@wwe.com . If I were you, I'd contact them via email, show them your site and what you intend to use the pics for, and ask nicely. They do allow pictures to be used on fan sites and things of that nature as long as it's not someone out to make a quick buck. So to whoever thought that you couldn't get the pics...WUSSUPWITDAT?

    I didn't mean to make it sound impossible to use WWE pictures, just that they make it a little more difficult than one would expect. If you do email that address asking for permission mbatalha, let us know how they respond

    Sorry, but I gotta raise the question:

    Why would you want 'em?
