    I found on facebook a girl with some nice pic and on the description there was written the name of the photographer, so I added her.
    I asked if I can use their pic of the girls and in exchange she would have been able to add advertising on the pic.
    And she said: "no you have to pay for it"
    And I replied: "Ok I think I prefer to download the pics from your girls for free without even add your advertising"
    And she said "ok I will sue you"

    loooooooool
    The pics doesn't have any logo or sign, just the pic iof the girl it self, nothing else.
    How she can show that she made the shoot?

    :D

    Lol, do you genuinely think that something needs a watermark or logo to show that they have ownership of the photograph?

    Just find another photo or pay.

    If the model doesn't own the pics, she doesn't have the permission to distribute them. Just because someone is in the photos, doesn't necessarily mean she owns them. It's tricky. It's called a creative commons license. I'd check with the photog first. I only know all this crap cause I've modeled from time to time. I'd still listen to the photographer and what they said until they tell you differently.

    Because we can does not mean we should, I am blackhat through and through and yet no one gets screwed.

    Though I would probably make more cash, life is about more.

    Hows about ask one of the million strugling semi pro photographers to do your content in exchange for small watermark or even some kind of trade.

    Think I am getting old :)

    She can see the pic on my fanpage, just because I told her!
    What if I open a website now with all of these pictures!
    She will never notice!

    If she does sue, you will lose. The photographer owns the image regardless of who or what is in the photo unless who or what is in the photo had an agreement with the photographer about a transfer of ownership license.
    Additionally, even if she does not sue, she can send a cease and desist letter to your webhost and they will remove your site because it is illegal.

    So... Quit being a dick and pay for the photo, or find another.

    I wouldn't bet on that. You can find other people's pics online. It's not hard...at all.

    There are tools to find duplicate photos, just as with content.

    I wouldn't worry about it, it costs a lot of money to sue someone, mostly people just threaten and never actually sue for small stuff like this. I always just say oh alright whatever and don't pay attention to threats of legal action at all.

    I personally feel that you shouldn't take this forward and use those pics without her permission. If she is a photographer, she maybe all those pics as a backup. She can use them to show that she owns them then you can be in a mess.
    But if you wanna be a jackass and show her that you don't give a fuck, then you can go ahead use the pics. If she'll be gutsy then file a case, else she wouldn't do anything to trouble you. To be frank, this all collection of pics thing seems tad bit creepy. :D

    Really? Well most of my family members have law degrees so if it comes to it, just don't try that with me. If we'll win, we'll sue. :D

    Why do you ask here if you're allowed to use her photos, if you don't care what she answers?

    For sure your not allowed to use other people photos! Is it so hard to understand basic rules?

    If you need those specific images so badly - just pay her. Even if it's like $10. Karma.
