  • Rules for using internet images???

    Say I find an image on the internet at a wallpaper site

    Then I use part or most of that image in a design.....

    Do I have to make reference to whoever created it, even if I can't find that person's name?

    What are the unwritten/written rules on using images found throughout the internet in your own work?

    You can't use a wallpaper image in a design without first ASKING the person it belongs to. They own the copyright. You don't even have to be making money on the design.

    Taking any image from anyone's site and using it in your own work without permission is a copyright infringement.

          Bottom line is this is copyright infringement...but to answer your question further, you can go to:

          H.R. 2281 ' The Digital Millennium Copyright Act'

          or

          THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLE UNDER UNITED STATES COPYRIGHT LAW

            the other thing is if you don't have any money nobody is going to sue you!
            Morally though I would not use it.

              It's a really good way to permanently damage your reputation.
              'Attaching' wages would suck too if someone decided to pursue you zealously.

                Since we're on the topic, I noticed this copyright for alawnmower company concerning the use of their content. Notice the first and second paragraphs "Copyright" and"Trademarks" sounds basically normal, but thethird paragraph "Using our website"is new to me. http://www.grasshoppermower.com/03/services/legal.html From what I understand is, the content can be used as long as it's for or by non-commercial services and uses? correct me if I'm wrong. Is this a normal copyright law for many businesses/companies?

                  Food is one of the worst subjects to photograph. There's a whole art to making food appear appetizing, mostly by doing all kinds of unappetizing things to it. A photog friend of mine was into it for a...

                  This is a low end Ricoh printer that prints to sublimation paper.
                  A quick check on the intertoobs told me that the inks used on this paper in this machine only print to polyester, or ''sublimation-ready''...

                  You need to find out very first thing, how removable this needs to be. There are any number of ways of putting text into a window, but after a time, it can be difficult to remove.
