The PMA Compliance Council has released a new whitepaper entitled “Using Images and Copyrighted Works on Your Blog: What You Need to Know.” The paper answers frequently asked questions by bloggers such as:
Can I use any image under the “Fair Use” doctrine?
Can I use an image if it has already been used on another site?
Can I use an image if I attribute credit it to the owner?
Can I be sued even if I made no money off of the post?
In addition, the paper includes an overview of copyright law and various ways to lawfully obtain images for use on blogs.
Special thanks go to lead contributor on the document, Adam Dahlen, Director of Client Development at iAffiliate Management.
