I have a few example cases whereby using stock image is "necessary". But I need to know how are you guys handling it? Did you get any takedown letter or sue cases? 1. Reviewing a product from affiliate site that uses stock image. Basically you either hotlink it or host it on your own site. 2. Re-blogging from any content that uses stock image. 3. Auto-blogging with purely scrapped content, which chances of more stock image is being used.
