    For example, I see someone doing something related to my niche and I post them on my homepage banner slider.

    Is that OK or am I breaking some law?

    I doubt it's a tort or going against the common law tho the person can legally request it taken down, or take a gamble with a civil suit.

    You could put it up but if they notice it then they could ask for it to be taken down.
