Has it ever occurred to you that you might be sued? After all, we do live in a litigious society where Seinfeld characters that sued for receiving a cup of coffee that was too hot have become all too real McDonald’s customers suing for the same reason in Seinfeld, a fictitious TV show.
Have you heard there was a blogger that was actually sued for using a picture he didn’t have permission to use? He took the picture down, but it wasn’t enough for the photographer. The blogger had to get a lawyer. Have you also heard ignorance is no excuse under the law? Ignorance of the laws of using others’ photos won’t protect you. I prefer to play safe and make my own graphics. This post will tell you how to use Canva.com, a relatively new site, to do that.
