    Hey Guys,

    I have 3 question

    1. I wanted to know if we are allowed to apply for adsense for a travel photography website. All the images would be taken from the internet.

    2. If I am not allowed to do so, Is it possible to take a screenshot from google maps (Street View) and use them on my blog to apply for adsense. I think that nobody owns the right for such pictures (correct me if I am wrong).

    3. This question is not related to the questions above . is it possible to advertise something on giant fb pages such as "I f--king love science" etc, doesn't matter if they even ask for $3000-$5000 for a single share?

    Hi Raza_Rizvi,

    1. sure you can apply and I'm sure you will be accepted but I'm not sure if you want that hassle with lawyers later. As for pictures from the Internet: don't take just anything from the Internet, it's copyrighted material. Make sure the pictures are under the Creative Commons Licence, Flickr has an extra search option for that - than you're safe :)

    2. Google owns the Street View pictures because they took the pictures and have copyright to it. You can use the screenshots only for personal use or if you're non profit organisation.

    3. Not sure if I fully understand this question. Sure it's possible, the question is, if it's worth it. If your product fits the audience, then you might wanna do the math. Always calculate the amount of fans, clicks you would/can get, clicks you need to make a sale and how much profit your sale brings you.

    You can use pictures as long as they are not copyright material. We all use pics from google images. Regarding the third question, ofcourse if you money you can get your page published anywhere but just take care of the ROI

    The above reply seems to imply that images from Google Images are not subject to copyright.

    This is not the case.

    More or less every single image you will come across on the internet is subject to copyright.

    Listen to the first response. There is a wealth of material you can you without problems - another site to check out is http://www.freeimages.com/

    Stock agencies and pro photographers use digital watermarking services akin to Digimarc to protect their content - why go down that path when it is so easy to find good content legitimately.

    Hello,

    All the images would be taken from the internet.
    If Google see this, or the owner of the photos making a report to google, you will get a ban.

    Luminate used to be a good way to monetize images but they shut down. I would go with Imonomy or GumGum
