    How do you handle this situation? Let's say I have a celebrity's site. What problems will face if I use photos found on google or smthg?

    Its unlikely you will face any legal consequences, except if your site is very very popular and well known.
    When you download an image don't forget to change the file name.

    You are lucky till you get caught. And you won't even know when the screwing process actually begins. If it's getty then it will be more sh!tty... for you

    I dont think there will be anything wrong until your site gets very popular.
    But keep in mind some things, Do not post images with watermark of any other website and change the title of the images

    you'll usually get away with it. When you become a very popular site like maybe top 1,000 in the world the owners of the image might want to sue you.

    When that happens, just do what The Pirate Bay did and move to Sweden. They seem to have no problem whatsoever :)
