what is LQ's policy on posting copyrighted comic strips?


I saw a certain comic strip, and thought one panel in it was rather topical for LQ and I might post it sometime. Then I thought, what if that's not allowed, because the comic is certainly copyrighted? I wouldn't be trying to make a profit off the author's work, but it's still copyrighted. I tried to look this up in the Rules, but didn't see anything.

Would it be practical to post a link, instead of uploading the image to LQ?
