Are You Guilty of Stealing Images? How to Avoid Breaking Copyright Law [Infographic] by Laura Forer Published on March 13, 2018                
You   may   have   noticed   some   recent   changes    to   Google   image   searches:   The   "View   Image"   button   has   been   removed   (although   you   can   still   view   an                                         image in context—on its original webpage), and the copyright notice has been made more prominent. The intent of those changes was likely to reduce copyright infringement. "Copying an image from Google is so easy, many people don't even know      it's wrong," says an infographic  about online image theft and copyright infringement. "But unintentional stealing is still stealing." That's   why   marketers,   bloggers,   and   others   using   images   online   need   to   make   sure   their   images   are   sourced   from   legal,   reputable   sites.   The   graphic, created by reverse image-search service Berify , explains the consequences of using someone else's images and ways to source images legally. It also shows photographers and artists how to protect their images and what actions can be taken if they suspect a theft has occurred.
Before   you   put   your   reputation—and   wallet—at   risk,   and   before   you   accidentally   steal   from   someone's   livelihood,   check   out   the   infographic   to   make   sure   you   know   how   to source your online images. Just tap or click to see a larger version.
