I have spent the entire evening removing all images from my blogs that are not my own property, or that I am not 100 % sure are free to use.
I have been sued before, by someone whom I would have never, in a million years, expected to sue me. They did not have a case against me, but this taught me a valuable lesson about assuming such a thing could never happen to me.
So, I have cleaned out all of my posts. My blog might not be as pretty as it once was, but at least I have a clean conscience in knowing that I am not in violation of any laws (that I am aware of).
I do urge you to read through the above link, and then carefully examine your posts all the way back to the beginning, as I found that, especially when I had first started blogging, I just followed everyone else's example, thinking it alright to copy any 'Google' image.
It is not.
And now that I know this, I will be very careful not to do so ever again.
(Hey, I never said I was the brightest bulb on the tree!) :0
But I am bright enough to learn from mistakes (mine or someone else's).
One more nugget of advice: Do not trust that just because a website allows you to copy an image (for free), that it is okay, unless you make sure that the image is theirs to give away in the first place! Chances are, that just like me, they didn't know any better, and thought any google image was up for grabs.
Well, I guess I covered this as best as I can.
Consider this a sincere apology if I have posted anything that was yours! I assure you it was never intentional.
Ah, well,...still livin' and learnin'!
