    99% of the people worried about image copyright are overthinking it. If you are a big co, don't do it. If you are doing some IM by yourself, don't worry at all. Worst case scenario is that they ask you to take them down. Lawsuits are expensive. No one is going to get into a lawsuit if they can't get a return on that investment.
