    I'm new at blogging and I want my blog to be approved by adsense. Should I put images from other article sites on my blog? Or it's prohibited?

    It depends on where their images originate from. If it's a stock photo site it would be fine, but if they are the property of the owner of the blog then you could find yourself in trouble.

    No You can't put image from other article.If you really want to get your blog to be approved by adsense then you have to put your own image related to your blog.

    To stay safe if you are using adsense just google " free copyrighted pictures" or use this website

    Not having unique images usually isn't a problem for adsense, but you should make sure you're using royalty-free photos which are legal for you to use.

    It comes down to two things: Permission and Fair Use.

    Fair Use made a lot more sense back in the days when I might use a piece of art in a 'zine, and 30 people might see it. Now, I call that 'zine a blog and 2500 people a day see it. And even if my blog is not a business, per se, I make ad revenue from it - no matter how small, it's still revenue.

    Fair Use on a blog (from which you make money) is questionable. Sure, if you have 100 readers, probably you're safe. If you have 200K readers a day, you'd be hard pressed in any court of law to say that isn't a commercial enterprise. So, Fair Use will not help you if you have any reported income from that blog.

    There have been instances where even using a book cover image for a review has been disputed. Also disputed, when a reviewer uses a book cover image, but links that cover to an affiliate account on Amazon or some other seller. Is that blatantly commercial use of the image "Fair Use?" Most authors and publishers don't take this kind of thing down, because ideally it stimulates sales of the book and the few cents the reviewer gets is worth it.

    Then there is Permission. This is the bit that basically where pretty much everyone fails. I write a Social Media blog and I found a picture on Flickr that was perfect. There was no creative commons license so I wrote the photographer. He apologized, but said he didn't have permission from the family of the subject, so he had to decline. I didn't use the picture.

    At least there should be an author's reference, but sometimes even so you'll get problems if author don't want to share with you his/her own content

    Your image should be unique and original. If you need to reprint others' image, you should mark the derivation
