One thing that’s really great about the ‘net is that you can find pretty much anything on any topic. That includes great photos and cool content. But you must be cautious and follow the copyright rules to keep your business out of hot water. Even big companies forget that sometimes. Here are some current examples.
Here’s a general rule to live by — Don’t use any content or graphic without permission.
That’s a pretty easy rule to follow. After all, as soon as something is published by someone else they own the copyright (and they don’t have to say it explicitly either). There are copyright rules of fair use that allow you to use excerpts of others work. Make sure you keep your business out of court by asking permission first.
