    Hey everyone!

    If I watch a basketball game and take a screenshot from it, am I allowed to share it on my website or it's copyright infringement? Also, does anyone know where I can get a licence to use NBA images and what's the usual price for it?

    Thanks!

    If you were at the game live then you have nothing to worry about, Wikipedia has people who work for them snap headshots of as many players as they can during games/warm-ups for this particular reason.

    If you weren't, then I'm not completely sure.

    probably not cause the screenshot is form a peice of work that is copyrighted and does not belong to you.

    but will you get away with it most likely.
