How do the big websites get away with posting copyright images 24/7?

    Go on 9gag, unilad, theladbible, thesportbible etc etc and you'll see thousands and thousands of images, but not a single reference to the copyright status or ownership of this content.

    Whereas if you go on any online 'newspaper' like Huffington Post, Daily Mail etc you'll see a reference to the ownership and rights of 99% of images used.

    How do sites like theladbible.com (12th most popular site in the UK and 2XX in the world) get away with posting this content?

    That crappy attempt at a Buzzfeed/Art of Manliness crossover is the 12th most popular site in the UK? F*** me, man.
