Google Images that you CAN Use - Part Two, Follow-Up Training
"How to Find Google Images that You CAN Use in Your Websites" has been by far my most widely liked and well received training so far. But if you happened to miss that training, you can go to http://tinyurl.com/ooblyzu to read up and catch up, so this training will have more relevance for you.
In short, there are images on Google (as well as Yahoo and Bing) that are there for people to be able use, either for re-use in their own blogs/websites, and/or for commercial purposes, and/or for modification/alteration and re-use.
The "Usage Rights" classifications are as follows:
- Not filtered by license
- Labeled for reuse with modification
- Labeled for reuse
- Labeled for noncommercial reuse with modification
- Labeled for commercial reuse
The classifications are pretty much self-explanatory, and, except for the first one, the images are usable by anyone who adheres to the stipulations of the category.
However, over the past couple months since I published the training, several people have commented, posting their concerns over possible licensing and copyright infringements, and attributions that may be required - in spite of, on "the surface", the seeming freely-given usage of these images.
So I decided to dig into the matter a bit deeper, and hence, this follow up training. Join me on the next page and I will get into the issues, the answers, and the means with which to be assured you are using images without being irresponsible and/or doing anything illegal.
