    Hi,

    I have read a lot on bhw starting tumblr sites or other sites with uploading pictures(for example: bikini photos) and building up a large follower base and combining it with cpa or cpc or something. A question, where could I find these pictures? If I download it from torrent sites and upload it to the website/tumblr is it will be a copyright issue? Can I use it? Can I get in some legal thing? What can I do to avoid it?

    Thanks for the help,

    Cheers

    One thing you can do is give credit to the photo owner. Something like "photo by:........."
    That way you are not violating any copyright. Unless the owner says explicitly that he doesn't want to share, or something similar.

    I have found a website where I can download any image:
    You are free:


    • Remix - to adapt the work.
    • Commercial - to use this work for commercial purposes.
    • Without Attribution - to use without attributing the original author.
    Under the following conditions:


    • Stand alone basis - You can not sell, license, sublicense, rent, transfer or distribute this image exactly as it is without alteration.
    • Ownership - You may not claim ownership of this image in its original state.


      So basically the only thing is that I can't sell the images without changing it a bit or say that 'photo made by me" and that's all?

    Isn't there an option in Flickr's search engine to specifically find pics for commercial use?

    I would like to avoid constant attribution, because I need a lot of pictures. So the key is this:
    "Stand alone basis - You can not sell, license, sublicense, rent, transfer or distribute this image exactly as it is without alteration."
    Changing a pixel counts as altering? Changing the colour, shade, anything counts as alteration?

    This whole legal thing is so shady and blurry...

    "Reply
    Yes you can use the Kozzi free images for all that you mention below."

    So that's all.
