    Hey guys,

    I've been scraping pictures for my instagram pages from sources like pinterest for some time now and i'm a bit scared that some day someone will see his picture on my page and (in the worst case) files a lawsuit against me and rules in my country are really strict regarding to this, so you have to pay a lot of money if that happens. What do you do to prevent this to happen? Do you only use copyright free pictures?

    Thanks in advance.

    Oh my god, where are you guys living? In the stoneage? Everything that can be found on publi profiles can be reproduced. Content on public profile timeline & walls can be shared/dupicated. After all, if you don't want someone to see your fat ass, you dont make it available online. In the worse senario you will be asked to remove the photos.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Just put "credit: @username" or something like that in the caption. As long as you're not outright claiming the pictures are your own, you're not going to get into major problems. The most IG will do is just remove the picture/video and give you a warning. Getting sued over posting a video or picture on social media that the poster hasn't claimed their own has never happened.

    nobody knows in which country you have your inst profile.
    so the risk should be quite low.
