We had a few run in’s with Getty Images recently, man was that’s a pain!
To explain, Getty and other companies are buying the rights to images or are running scans on images all across the internet to find infringement. Unfortunately if you are found using the photos, they skip the cease and desist and will request payment from as little as $250 up to thousand of dollars.
We have a strict guideline now at CreativeHaus to use images from iStock or other partners.
We have found a few great sites for “Creative Commons Zero” License. This means you can use, copy, and modify the images without having permission from the original owner.
Disclaimer: Make sure to check permissions on each site to make sure you are following the permissions they set.
