Fair Use Laws
I asked some friends of mine who know more about copyright laws and all that than I do about the problem with someone copying/downloading my photos from this, or any other Internet, site. My friends said that it IS illegal and against copyright laws to just steal someone's photo that way. If the photos have a copyright notice on them, which all of mine do, and it does not say that you have permission to use them, then you are not supposed to just steal them. For commercial or personal use. You are supposed to ask first.
Here is a link one of my friends gave me that explains Fair Use more: http://www.teachingcopyright.org/handout/fair-use-faq
Fair Use only applies if you are taking a part of a work and changing it or using it for school or newspaper purposes or the like, or if you are quoting something else, and then you can only use so much of the work. It DOES NOT apply to stealing someone's photo because you are not using a part of the photo, you are taking the whole thing. You are not even supposed to do it for screen savers or anything like that because the photos can be sold for that purpose and you are not paying.
If someone has another link that contradicts this information, I'd love to see it.
