… so don’t do what I did. I pulled a photo from the web and jammed it into a blog post. And it doesn’t matter that I searched for ‘free photo stock.’ Nor does it matter that I never intended to steal someone else’s work.
What matters is I didn’t pay attention to an artist’s copyright/watermark, cropped it out of the photo, and used it as the header for my blog …
My apologies to William Quartier, whose image I took, and thank you to the gentleman who pointed it out to me.
Don’t do what I did. Credit the artist or ask permission to use their work … There’s no such thing as ‘free content.’
