I'm not sure that I'm posting this into the correct forum - so apologies if it requies moving.


As I said in an earlier post, I'm thinking of starting an expat blog. I have been looking at a few blogs to get an idea of how I should go about this - and succeed.

One or two of the more professional looking blogs I have seen often use thumbnail photos to illustrate their blog.

My question is does anyone know whether I need to get copyright before I can use a thumbnail photo - or is that considered 'Fair Use' ?

Thanks for any advice.

As I understand it...

Any photo is copyrighted to the person that takes it, unless it is expressly stated otherwise. Using just a small image doesn't get you around issues of copyright. Many bloggers will use photographs that aren't copyright to them - even on the big blogs - but I would guess there would be little objection by many copyright owners if you are using an image to help promote the owner's product.

It's just a risk you can choose to take, or not to take, as you please.

OK, thanks. I suspected so, but just wondered if there was some loop hole I didn't know about!

After DMCA (or other copyright laws), whatever published on the web is automatically copyrighted. Even if you don't see "copyright", it's copyrighted. However, I often see pictures taken from other websites and modified used on many websites. I'm not saying that this is the way to get around; I'm simply saying that many people do this.
