    Hey,

    I am kind of interested in growing accounts and then sell them at a certain point.
    So I wanted to get one thing clear at the start:

    Is it ok just to repost other profils pictures or is there like a law issue? Like if they have rights on this picture or whatever...

    I dont have a clue at all and google didnt helped me a lot.. :D
    So would be great if you could help me out.

    If you know anything that i should take care of just tell me right away. I basically do not have much knowledge regarding this.

    If you use someones picture they will not sue you unless you are totally defaming their character and they have the money to hire a lawyer etc. I had instances were I used someones image and they just messaged me so I removed it, no issue.
