Photographer sues Blogger--YIKES!

Please read this >article< if you post photos on your blog! I tend to use Googled photos though I always link to the site, but I'm not taking any more chances and am combing through my posts (YIKES! so many...) to remove every one of them.

I still need to find out where to find photos that are safe to use without repercussions. If you have such an one, please post the link in the comments!

Good luck if you do use photos that are copyright-possible and let the ErAsInG begin!

  2. Yeah, I'm going to be removing any pics that aren't mine, too. It's scary, and sad that somebody has to become an example like that.

  3. A good place to start is the Creative Commons search page:

    http://search.creativecommons.org/

    It also includes links to individual sites like WikiCommons that include unencumbered media. As long as you stick to stuff known to be in the public domain (pre-1924 images) or CC licensed images that aren't NoDerivs or ShareAlike, you'll be safe.

  4. Yep, I read about this yesterday. TBH, it was something I had wondered about for a while. Luckily I only had October to go back to and didn't have that many images. Using my own might make for some interesting results!

  5. I'll start checking my posts. Most of my pics are my own, I'm usually wary. Thanks for highlighting this.

  7. I work in a place where copyright and intellectual property are paramount - and I've never used any pic on my blog that I've not paid copyright to! Hence I keep to my pics taken by me and with consent (if anyone objects to their pic being taken if it is to be used in a public arena - you have to take the pic down). Well, Charlie doesn't mind I'm sure! LOL!

    Take care

  9. You can download archived programs and put them onto your IPOD or MP3

  10. So, pay attention to the narration of each videos
    as you will certainly pick up one or two great tips from
    them. This doesn't mean drinking vast amounts of water just prior to a workout, but sustained daily hydration. Moving up the ladder, the Edge 605 and 705 incorporate color non-touch screens and extensive mapping capabilities.
