  • 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: http://klucid.com/images/lying-false-advertisements.png

            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.

                I use photobucket, but instead of pasting the link, I paste in the IMG tag it provides. That puts the image right in your post. I wonder if that would give you better results.

                Thank you, seamas. I submitted my labels last night. The final toned labeled were improved somewhat before submission - namely, the brewery logo included and drop shadows for the illustrations (link below)....
