  • 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.

          Here's the ad, you can imagine why I call them out on false advertising:

            Lol. "Simulated imagery. Results not typical."

              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.
              But I'm no lawyer...

                I would agree with your logic if it weren't for the entire name of the company being placed immediately adjacent to the truck. In those instances where you don't spell out the entire name, the P1L is...

                I agree that having a baby in an ad for alcohol isn't a good idea. While it may be funny to a small demographic (most of whom probably aren't drinking age yet), most people are going to find this distasteful....

                Also, the "under" a bottle line was meant to illustrated how you will neglect to turn the bottle down when you lift it up to drink. Technically when you lift a bottle to drink, you're...

                To rockinthisworld,

                I can half way agree, maybe I need to look at it from a different view point for a while, that the line signifying the road is a bit much and or un-called for. Several...

                I'll leave the truck talk to people who know things about trucks, but here are my thoughts.
                • The line that's supposed to indicate the ground doesn't add anything to the illustration.
                • The line framing
