In case you missed it, Author Roni Loren shared an important tip — Bloggers Beware: You CAN Get Sued for Using Pics on Your Blog — My Story. If you use photos on your blog, you need to check out her post.
If you think I’m trying to scare you, you are correct.
Loren, a romance writer, shares a valuable (and expensive) lesson after a photographer asked her to remove his photo and demanded compensation for its use.
Others who have shared Loren’s story with some helpful hints about photo resources include:
- August McLaughlin shared Blog Images Made Easy: Tips from a Non-Graphic Artist
- Debbie Maxwell wrote Keep from getting sued for the photos on your blog. She includes two links to free photos.
- Loren shared this a few days after the original post: A Bright Side – Writers Building a Photo Sharing Community
- Updated: Thanks Tonia for sharing this Hugs and Chocolate post with lots of free sites for photos — Sharing is Caring.
For my Perfect Picture Book Friday posts. I’ve been operating under the fair use idea that it’s a review or criticism. Anyone have any thoughts about using an image of a copyrighted book cover? I’m all ears on this one.
