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:

What areas should you check on your blog? Guest posts. Blog hop badges. Anything you “just grabbed” from Google Images.

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.

Loren’s story is a cautionary tale. If you have photos you are unsure about, remove them from your blog.
