So what is the correct etiquette with blogs and images anyway? It seems like alot of blogs just copy images from other sites when they’re posting/promoting. It really looks great and I’d like to do the same but I’m not sure about the correctness of it all.
Do you have to get permission from each and every person whose image you use when you link to their site? It doesn’t seem like most people do since I know I’ve been linked to without notification. I was ecstatic about it actually so I’m assuming most people wouldn’t mind. And it seems like it would be rather cumbersome to send out emails, hope for responses and then try to remember what you wanted to write when you first saw the image.
But technically, isn’t using someone else image on your blog copyright infringement? Or does blogging fall under a sort of “understood fair use”? Rather like quoting from an article?
Time for some research I think.
