I am in the process of designing a web for the Internet for the company I work for.  What are the general guidelines on copywrites on graphic files?  For example, I have an old Corel Draw 3 package that has a nice collection of graphics and have used some over the years for brochures, newsletters, etc.
Generally speaking can I use these graphics on the web page?  Didn't I purchase the writes when I bought the software package years ago?  Tell me what you know.

Yes when you purchase clipart like that it is royalty free meaning you can use it as many times as you like without having to pay for it again. You DID buy it initially after all. However copywrites do apply to other peoples work and even if their work isnt copywritten its generally nice to get their permission before using their images. Copywrites also apply to scanned images from books, text from books, magazines etc. Shouldnt have too much problem with that on a web page. A good rule of thumb is to use good judgement in deciding what you should and shouldnt use. If theres question about it...dont use it.
