    Hey guys,
    I need some nice pictures for my Youtube Videos and fotlia/shuterstock got some nice images. My Plan is to download the copyright image, upload it to google picture search and then download the original picture. I just want to know if shuterstock can find out that I have never bought the picture and if there will be copyright issues with YouTube?
    Thanks in advance

    Never use stolen / borrowed images on your main sites, as you're leaving yourself wide open to potential legal action.

    The only time I'd use such images is on throw away buffer sites.
