We've been through that before a few times. HarryT's avatar pic is one that was taken of a model-maker's model. The pic itself is one he has every relevant right and permission to use.
While Daleks are probably trademarked, he's not using
it for trade,
so that's not a concern: there's no infringement from taking pictures of something that someone else has trademarked, as long as you don't try to use it commercially yourself. And that's pretty murky, as it happens: how many movies don't
contain shots with some sort of trademarked image in them (consider any
street scene, for instance)?
