    Does this go for Chriza's food pictures if credit isn't given to the original photographer?

    ...yeah people post fake "polls" here all the time without linking the source. I've always included a link to any story I post. It's just netiquite and it gives the original authour/publisher proper credit. That seems fair.

    They are fine, no thread here should be so serious that food pic isn't allowed.

    Why would a legal firm care if an unsourced story was posted?

    We had one where a news station incorrectly posted a picture of the principal rather than the teacher who was accused of messing with a kid. The principal was trying to get her pics removed.

    #1: Do you understand the term fair use? Just because you provide attribution and/or a link back to the original doesn’t mean you’re free and clear. Fair use has nothing to do with attribution. That’s an issue related to plagiarism, which is different from copyright.
    Fair use basically means you’re allowed to infringe on someone’s copyright and they can’t do anything about it. If your use is covered by fair use, you don’t have to provide attribution anyway (although it would be nice).
    #2: Why are you using the image? If it is “…for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research…” you’re on the right track.
    If you’re just using the image to pretty up a post, then think twice; or better yet, get permission or buy a stock image.
    #3: Have you transformed the image? If the new work which incorporates the copyrighted image is a “transformative work”—what you created no longer resembles the original—there is a greater likelihood of finding an exception to copyright infringement.
    Are you taking an image and incorporating it into an infographic? Is the image now part of a video used for one of the reasons set forth in the Copyright Act?
    #4: How much of the image are you using? If you’re using a thumbnail and linking to the original location, there is greater likelihood of finding fair use than if you just post the original image. If you’re doing a post about facial features and are just using a portion of the face from an image, you stand a better chance of arguing fair use than if you used the entire image.
    #5: Are you willing to risk your site being taken down, getting a cease and desist/bill/DMCA or being sued? The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) provides very powerful options for a copyright owner to protect his or her works in the digital space. By hitting “publish,” you may be opening a can of worms.

    I get it but more people probably read the thread if it has some fun in it.
