    I run a news website and as it becomes popular I envisage I may come into the image copyright potential problem.

    I assume many of you run your own blogs, so how do you get around the potential copyright trouble?

    I've come across 'Wylio' which allows you to search and download the image, with the relevant copyright material attached. But as a lot of my news is 'breaking news', it would be nice to see if there's any other alternative methods where my writers can get their images from?

    Currently, we avoid any Paparazzi website and also if the copyright logo is actually on the image, we avoid those too. I just need to get it set up that my writers have X choices and whichever they choose, the image will be free to use (even if it means including copyright underneath)
