Think twice before you copy someone else’s images to your blog/site. Even pictures of public monuments/tourist attractions are protected by copyrights.
For e.g. did you know that you can take picture of Eiffel tower only during the day time? (the lighting design is copyrighted!!).
Infact, you may need permission for the following photographs: Photographing buildings, works of art, or other copyrighted items; Photographing people; Photographing on public or private property!.
Read here for the legal angle.
So what’s the next-best alternative? A search engine which only lists the free-to-use photos?
