Just curious of the legality of it? Or the liability of it?
Technically every pic you post on fb becomes fb's property unless you place a copywrite sign on the pic. So if you take it from fb, they could claim ownership of it if it goes viral or whaterver...
I totally disagree with that. If you go to the Nike FB page and take a photo from them that doesn't have a copyright watermark on it, I can guarantee you that the photo is copyrighted and either Nike or the photographer (depending on what rights were negotiated between the two on who has ownership of that image according to the rights purchased) has that photo copyrighted. (FB does not own a copyright on that image.) You place that on a site and they (ie. photographer or client) find out, you will get sued.
It is safe unless and until the owner reports it
Nope; it is not legal !
However; you can search images on Google which are allowed to be used anywhere!
(You can do so; by filtering the image results through the setting option of Google search)
