We all use images at times in our online work. Where do you get your images? Some use only their own photos. Most people don’t have the skill or opportunity to take all the photos they require.
When you are starting out and money is scarce, you try to avoid paying for your illustrations by using Public Domain images. Herein lies a trap: some images listed as Public Domain are there without the photographers’ permission. So says Patty Hankins, a photographer.
I’ve just read her newsletter on the subject of copyright infringement and think that members here might be interested in what she says. She speaks from the experience of having had some of her photos misused in this manner.
Before giving you the link to her newsletter I want to add that I’m merely a subscriber to her website. I’m not promoting her, her website or anything else in any way.
Note: The link was a very long so I shortened it
