Stealing images from the web vs using images ethically [infographic] | visua.ly

Editor’s Note: Copyright and fair use of images is oftentimes a difficult set of rules to follow. It’s very easy with the tools available (namely Google Image search) to grab pictures and use them without thinking whether you are using that image fairly or not. While this infographic is a bit self-promotional on behalf of imgembed.com, they are a useful platform for making the web a better, more fair place. Take a look! 

Let us know in the comments your thoughts on image use online! I’d love all perspectives  – from bloggers to photographers.

    I agree on the ethical use of images. We should always give credit to the owners and makers of the image or at least mention them to recognize their work.

    Very interesting. However I’m a graphic designer/artist and sometimes required to use google images to incorporate in to the design. However I hate this way because it lessens my creativity as an artist plus so many projects have to be working on at the same time. I think buying/giving credit to the author or creator is essential.
