    Can you get banned what are the chances of that happening and can you still monetize your blog if you have images that aren't yours with no source?

    You will probably go to jail. Maybe death sentence.

    No really, nothing will happen. You get banned ? Rinse and repeat.

    Just try it out. As TayaX said, worse come worse you'll get banned. If you are very keen to not give credit to the source then run them through some Instagram style filters, maybe that will work.

    You'll be hanged by the neck until you are dead.

    Absolutely nothing. 99% of the content on all social media is "shared"

    I had a site of mine slapped for DMCA violation in 2008, for using some guy's pics. There are safe sources of pics you can use. Most big sites are simply sourcing images from obvious places. Tineye is your friend.

    Nothing happens. I had a picture on my blog and someone wanted to take it down and they ended up contacting tumblr to get rid of the picture off my blog. (It worked)

    How is this even a question, lol. you can literally sell someone else's product online, impersonating them, and you probably won't get caught until you've made 10s of thousands of dollars, easily. and even then you'll probably just have to stop. its the internet
