    Where do you guys get your images from? Just say for an example, if you were writing an article on an LG 40" TV, where could you get the image from? I've used Google Images but I've been reading up on copyright infringement and you're not allowed to do that!

    So I ask you, where could one safely get images of a branded or even non branded product without consequences?

    AFAIK, Copyright infringement fits only to those who mislead people on a trademarked/copyrighted item. As long as you use it in review articles, you'd be fine to use the images even if you copy it from their website. If you're too paranoid about the copyright, you can always include the image source under the image or at the end of the article and get away legally.

    There are so many sites to pick royalty free images and depositphotos is my favorite.

    Ah brilliant, thank you guys! Absolute legends :)

    Can I get in trouble for embedding a YouTube video into my article that isn't mine?

    I believe it should be okay to put other's video in your website as the video is made for sharing... in fact you are promoting the video..
    experts can correct me if I am wrong..

    If you give credits to the owner, say that you don't own any rights upon the video and all that usual disclaimer it should be just fine.

    you can always use google to find HQ Images , there should be no issue with copyright unless the image is watermarked with website name or any other stuff .

    when i get images from google apart from selecting the usage rights thing i also do an image search for that exact image, if I find it in many other places i think it's pretty safe to use it, if it's only found in a couple of places I usually skip it just to be sure.
    as for the video, if they didn't want you to embed the video or your site they wouldn't provide such a feature so I'd say you're safe to embed anything as long as you take the embed code from youtube directly

    Yes, I agree what jonnyc has said.
    Google is a good option to find your needed images.

    I stick with Flickr almost 100%. I can usually find just about anything I want there and do not have to go looking elsewhere.

    The usage rights are pretty straightforward and there's tons of Creative Commons content.
