    I've started an Amazon website, and I want to use a picture for my "character". Is this legal? Maybe if i use a free stock photo?

    I would likely put you at risk of civil liability though it is very common most people would not simply ask you to take it down rather than starting this huge hooopla

    Yeah, but people wouldn't sue someone's FB spam account.. I might just use a stock photo if I can find one that doesn't look like a model

    It sure isn't legal, but the chances are low you get caught.
