Yes! Any picture that is the work of someone else may hold a copyright, and if so, that person may not allow you to use it. There are ways to get permission, by either email or a letter, and the owner may also ask for a small amount of compensation. The easiest way to avoid this is to use avatars provided to you by this site, or try to search for "free avatars" on the web.
