Posting photos - copyright rules?
Can someone please clarify exactly what the rules are about using the IMG function to post pictures into forums.
As I understand it, it is still OK to do this for photos available for general consumption from any website, but copyrighted photos (eg those at Advantage Tennis) cannot be posted unless with permission. Only urls can be used to point back to the website. Is this right?
But what about using copyrighted photos found on another website ie, not the originating website? One would presume that the web-owner has permission to use someone elses copyrighted pics, and therefore, if it is OK to copy any pics from a public domain, would this also be OK to post them on our forums?
