    If I stole a bunch of pictures from a certain account can I get in trouble for my Instagram being only their pictures?

    yeah, because when somebody finds out and reports you, the account will get banned

    What if the pictures are not theirs? Big pages in my niche usually google, instagram or tumblr the pics.

    well, that's exactly the same as stealing. pictures do not belong to them but unless somebody reports that, nothing happens.

    I'm pretty sure the actual photographer of the pic has to report it. No one else knows if you have permission or not

    Actually fitness pages posts pictures of arnold schwarzenegerer(dafuq is that) and these pages have over 750k followers. Do you think arnold is going to report them ? i don't think so. It's about content you steal.

    Haha this.

    Just as long as the account owner, or even his/her friends don't find out, then you should be good. ;)

    But come up with original pics if you can. It's actually more worth it on the long run if you plan on doing this long term.

    You can always JV with someone who can provide you with original content.

    Probably a good idea to check if your competitors have the same pictures. If they do then, it's probably not a good idea to do that. Chances are you're going to get reported and your account banned.

    You can also ask the users to send you content if your niche is like fitness or something.
