Beware of Using Images from Google Searches

Recently, author Roni Loren shared her unfortunate experience of being sued for using copyrighted photos in a blog, pictures she had found on a Google search and pictures she had thought would be acceptable if she added to a personal, not-for-profit blog, on which she included a “I don’t claim to own this picture” disclaimer. Unfortunately,  because the law was n his side, the photographer won. This is a lesson from which we all can learn. Be careful what pictures you add to your blogs! (With her permission, I have linked this blurb to Roni Loren’s blog and the complete story.)
