Don’t steal

leave a comment »

For those who don’t know – using images without permission is copyright infringement, or to put it simply, stealing. You know that big FBI piracy warning at the beginning of movies?  Same idea. So if you see an image online and you think, “That would look great on my site.” Don’t just grab it.

For those who know better, but think they won’t get caught – two words… Picscout and Tineye.  Both are reverse search engines that scour the web for images. Show them your image, and they go out and find it online.

FWIW – my most infringed image…
