So despite the dreamy hue I’ve been in since realizing there was less than 10 (TEN!!!) days until TOUCHING SMOKE hits shelves, I read this…
Bloggers Beware: You CAN Get Sued For Using Pics on Your Blog – My Story A true story about what happened to a blogger who used images off the net.
Okay, so I’m guilty of doing this! I see a pretty picture and I go all shiny-eyed and girly. I just have to share it with all the people who come across my blog! I never meant any harm and usually I get my images under the Fair Use standards like the blogger of this article did and now, I shudder to think that this could have been me. I just feel awful for Ms. Roni Loren, and, although I can understand where the photographer was coming from, this was just horrible.
So, I just spent the last twenty minutes, combing through my site(s) deleting all images that are not book cover or mine. There is still work to be done, but I just wanted to take a quick minute to warn all my blogger friends to BE CAREFUL!
