  • Copyrights in blog posts?

    I'm curious about whether or not my blog infringes on copyrights or anything of that nature. I want to start posting more blogs like this...

    I basically took a snapshot of an advertisement and critiqued it.

    Any ideas?

    That's a question best answered by a lawyer. Not sure if it would fall under "fair use" or another exception to copyright laws.

      Thanks for the advice. I'll unpublish it for now just to be safe.

        I feel people are fairly lenient about this online. If it's an online ad, link to the company who's advertising. People might be less friendly about a critique, but as far as I know you'll get either a request or a cease and desist before anyone attempts any legal action.

        If it were me you were critiquing, I'd be happy for the free publicity.

          That's what I figured, but I basically call them out on false advertising.

            Lol. "Simulated imagery. Results not typical."

            Indeed.

              Argue "editorial content." You are writing an article. You can do that just like you'd be able to do it in a newspaper op-ed.

                Tried to find it on Netflix last night, but it wasn't there. Tried Amazon Prime too, and couldn't find it. I would like to see it, though.

                If you take a photo of a red apple, the image will be red. If you take a photo of a grey apple, throw it away because it's spoiled. If you take a photo of both a red and grey apple at night, the image...
