I was just thinking about using some scraped images in my blog(in a gallery, or a single post with a description). For some reason, I never thought about copyright issues before, but I stumbled into this Q&A: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091015051750AApWh7Y I know it's a 5 year old thing, but do the things get easier? That Getty images seem pretty hard on anything they trawl out. I scraped images from pinterest, so it is vey possible that some of them will be protected. Several £1,000 cases can devastate some marketers/bloggers, especially the novice. It would hurt anyways: the bigger you get - the stronger the blow, as you're likely to face more claims. I see all the same images everywhere, and noone seems to care. Yet, looks like there are real cases of square copyright claims to website owners. What do you think? Should I worry when using scraped images in my blogs or pins or tweets or FB fanpage or whatever?
