    Hi, I seen the website viralnova DOTT co_m which is quite famous, use pictures from Reddit and Instagram without asking (I presume). I can't know for sure, but I doubt they ask so many peoples on a socials if they can use X picture in their article, given how many articles they churn out daily.. (They also somehow iframe Instagram posts)

    Anyway, my question is: can I use the pictures I find on Instagram, Reddit, Pinterest without occur in copyright infringement? ? What if "iframe" them as ViralNova is doing? would that change anything as I'am not hosting them?

    Here is what I'am talkiing about..

    One way to leverage on photos is to insert 'Credits'. This is a form of mutual respect and good way. Otherwise, a linkback is possible.

    Just stay within the copyright act.

    If its just regular people from other countries that took the picture you can pretty much ignore copyrights on it.

    You can get away with it easier if you look at sources that have already been dug by people.

    Make sure that you grab content leeched by very few people rather than none or too many.
