    Should I really be concerned about legal issues when I take pictures
    from google images? Has anybody ever run into problems?

    You can't trust us (and certainly not me) for legal advice. ALWAYS do your own due diligence, but I can say that I use them all the time (though I usually doctor them some in Photoshop) and have no problems.

    After using Google images, You are safe until you are claimed. It is better to go for stock images.

    The writing is pretty much on the wall, as long as you dont get caught and im sure 100, 000 s of websites do and have no problems, but you dont want to be the one that does if you can avoid it.

    why r u not going with google royalty free image. if you will use royalty free image then you have not to worry about google legal issue.
