I started micro-niche site a while ago and am heavily using pictures gathered off pinterest etc...To build more authority / " sharability " to the website I would like to use tutorials from other authoritative sites in the niche and re-write the entire tutorial in my own words. However I want to use the images from the other sites. This sounds like copyright infringement to me but I know the laws are very gray on this subject. I started to read some on the fair use doctrine and this quote comes up a couple of times. quotation of excerpts in a review or criticism for purposes of illustration or comment; quotation of short passages in a scholarly or technical work, for illustration or clarification of the author?s observations; It's not too specific on what they mean by 'illustration' Here is the doctrine url: http://www.copyright.gov/fls/fl102.html If no one here knows the answer then I'll post on a legal forum. Just trying to stay out of legal trouble.
