Copyright law is technical and involved. To add to the confusion, there is a widespread misconception that everything on the internet is free. This is unfortunate. I want you to be comfortable and enjoy this site, but also understand the rules governing its use. So, we need to be perfectly clear here.
To put it in a nutshell … if a person did not create a piece of art, photo, etc., it does not belong to that person, and as such, he/she may be in violation of the U.S. and International Copyright laws by using it. Simply, using a copyrighted work without written permission of the copyright holder is theft.
