Every dang day,
I go on Facebook
and see writers posting photos,
photos they don’t have permission
to use.
These are the same writers
who complain
about piracy of their own works.

Photographers have been
aggressively persecuting
writers and bloggers
for using their images,
for stealing their work.

Do you think you’re safe
because your image falls within
a Creative Commons license?
Think again.

As Anita Campbell shares

“Be especially careful
if you’re using images
with Creative Commons licenses:
What’s to say the license holder
won’t change their mind later
and modify the license to a full copyright?
How will you ever prove it?
Consult your company attorney
for guidelines.”

You’re a busy person.
You don’t have time for lawsuits.
Be careful when using images.
