I had a discussion with someone on the episode community team , and i just wanted to have my information correct. Can you use overlays you find on google? i thought it was perfectly fine? of course not overlays with the watermark on it ofc
Technically yes, but I suppose in some way it can be plagiarizing because you’re using someone else’s stuff. But everybody does that
So it should be fine. Don’t think it will be plagiarizing
No you cannot. It could have a copyright claim on it, plus, it’s not yours
@Apes can you help us?
Hm. Okay. Well everyone has their opinions.
For me, you CANT use images from google. Images are copyrighted. You can only find overlays from public domain sites that are free to use. Joseph Evans did a video about this. Hm, and pintrest.
You can check out this thread IF you want to.
U can check this one out as well if u want to.
i never knew you couldn’t find overlays on google i’m not trying to start an arugement for i have heard of many people doing this. Of course i know not to use overlays with a watermark on it. But thank you for the information
It’s okay, I wasn’t either. I did make a mistake about this before, and now I know about it. It’s okay to know and ask about this kind of stuff.
BOOKMARKING THE THREAD! So, I can remind myself.
Trust me, I’ve did this before, and I’m like…“oh wow”.
I’ve heard from bigger authors before that you can and have used overlays from google so i was
very surprised that you couldn’t
ikr, I was to.
This is honestly such a tough subject. But I think I agree where you really don’t want to copyright. So my best advise is be careful!!
You can. Just make sure there’s no copyright.
@RYAN please close this
Thank you! I will for sure credit you regardless!
