Using Images You Find Online Can Lead to a Lawsuit. Even For a Small Blog Like Yours.

Yeah, I know, it's crazy!
Seriously - what do they care if your little blog with its traffic by mistake hosts an image that you randomly found online and added to your post without getting the licensing?
I guess if they can milk you for all its worth, then they will! They don't really care that you're not making a penny off of it. Oh, well.
I just finished reading this post on Laura Roeder's site and found it really helpful (in addition to the great info that can be found at WA) and figured I'd share it so y'all can benefit too.
Hope you find it helpful!
