Then I read an article on a blog which gave me a bit of a fright. It was about a company being sued for using one poor photograph that belonged to someone else. $8000 for copyright infringement of ONE photo! I think it is an article everyone should read so here is the link:
I found this very scary. So even if you give credit to the owner and don't profit from it, you can get sued. Computer programs track usage of that person's copywritten material and can trace it back to your usage, even if you are a small blogger. That is worrying!
The images that I have used on this post were FREE and un-copywritten so anyone can use them and these are the only sites I will use in future. These images were from Pixabay. I do not fancy the idea of having to face fines and hire lawyers as I have no money to spare for that kind of thing. I am going through my blog and social media sites to remove anything that even might be copywritten to stay safe.
