    Hey there,

    I'm not sure if this thread belongs here but I had this question on my mind for a few days. There have been quite a few shutterstock resellers lately and I'm wondering about the legal aspects.

    With free stock-foto websites you can be quite certain that everything checks out if the images are in the public domain category/licensing. But what about images you bought off shutterstock or from the aforementioned resellers?

    Can they be used freely on private blogs or is there a danger of copyright infringement if they are not bought on shutterstock itself?
