Free or Not Too Free?
If you did not buy the photo or personally take the photo, you are using someone’s copyright when you use their photo. Be prepared for a bill!
If you get caught using a “free” photo you can expect the fines for usage to be $750-$1,500. You can buy photos for $1-$5 each, so why risk it!!
What to do?
- DO NOT go to Google and look for “royalty free” images. They are not free.
- Remove any photos from your site if you do not know the source.
- Get stock photos from real sources like DepositPhotos.com They offer #100 photos for $100 on a regular basis.
Remember that someone own rights to every photo, the smart move is to buy what you want to use on your website and promotional materials to be safe.
As always, we offer free website evaluations/recommendations.
