Can I use pictures on Google for a background?


#1

Hi,

I just wondered if I’m allowed to use images from Google as backgrounds or if it’s against the law without the person’s permission?

Thanks,

Lucy

You can. Most of us do. Once an image is online, it’s pretty much public property. If the images contain logos, business names, anything with a trade mark, that’s when it would be considered copyright infringement. Either way, Episode is pretty good at rejecting those just in case you’re not sure of a certain image.
