No photo prompt today guys as I wanted to get this posted and next Tuesday I have another special post already scheduled 🙂
Jennifer M Eaton pointed her readers in the direction of a blog post by Roni Loren….. You Can Get Sued For Using Pics On Your Blog – My Story recently.
If you haven’t seen anything about this, please, do go and read it. It’s shocking, scary, and definitely something we should all be aware of.
I don’t often use photos on my blog that haven’t been taken by me, but after reading this, I don’t think I’ll ever be using anyone else’s stuff again! *gulp*
This begs the question, how far does copyright go? Do you have copyright over something you say? In a public place? In private? Who owns the copyright if you take a picture of say, a piece of art or a building that’s been designed by an architect? And what about all those pics and cartoons that get passed around on FaceBook?
Where do you get your photos from?
