Using photo library images without permission? Expect a big bill

There’s a good piece in today’s Guardian Technology about image libraries’ attempts to enforce copyright, and the scary bills resulting from unauthorised use. If someone’s building a site for you it’s a very good idea to make sure that the contract makes them, not you, liable for any nicked pics – or better still, make sure that every image is sourced legally. A watertight contract blaming the developer for copyright infringement won’t do you much good if they go bust and the image owners come a-knocking.ikoni

    Might I suggest the excellent and entirely free Morgue File, a repository for photo-artists’ work, for sourcing your images. They like to know how you used them occasionally, but they are free, Free, FREE, I tell you!
