Sharing is caring, right?
Well, yes … but when it comes to sharing other people’s images, there are a few restrictions.
When someone creates an original image, they automatically own rights to that image. And when one of the rights to that image is used without the creator’s consent, that’s called copyright infringement — and it’s a big deal.
On the other hand, there are certain circumstances under which you can share images on your blog without asking permission under what’s called the Fair Use Doctrine.
… So what does that all mean? What exactly are the rights people have to the images they create? When is it okay and not okay to use other people’s images without permission? And where are good places to look for pre-approved images?
