    Hi All, :D

    I know this must be very basic stuff, but i just don't know the answer.

    I just found this blog

    Code:
    h**p://www.thegadgetblog.net
    Notice that he/she always had picture(s) in every posting he/she made.

    Now, what i'm wondering is where did he/she get all that product pictures and content from?

    If i just Google about new digital products and take all the pictures and content i find and then post them to my own blog, is that fine? :confused:

    Please help me with your knowledge seniors.

    Eager :D

    If you don't have direct access to a camera and the products themselves, in some cases "borrowing" images from other sites is acceptable. Always host them on your own server though. Though lots of people steal, if you can, give credit to the website you borrowed from.

    Hi oldenstylehats, thanks for your information, but

    Is every company out there fine with this?

    Is there any chance they will sue me or something?

    Thank you so much,

    Eager

    No, not all companies will be fine with it, but the simple truth of the matter is that it is extremely unlikely that a representative of a company will find your site and complain. If they were to decide to take a legal route, it would probably come in the form of a Cease and Desist letter, which basically means, "Stop posting our stuff. Take everything of ours down off your website and never do it again, jerk!"
