I plan to produce a calendar for my home office using various sporting photographs. Do I need any permissions?

Hi brumkidd,
Theoretically the answer is yes, because your use in this way of someone else's (presumably copyright) images would not be for research or private study (see section 29 of the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988). However provided that you keep the calendar at home then I don't think you run any real risk of being sued for infringement.
