Copyright

As a writer, I’m interested in articles or blog posts about copyright when I stumble on them. What I hadn’t spent much time thinking about are the images I use in my online writing, Facebook, and now this blog. I was reading through one of the blogs I follow (Chasing Dreams), and I found a link to a cautionary tale for anyone – but particularly writers – who posts, shares, and communicates online:  http://www.roniloren.com/blog/2012/7/20/bloggers-beware-you-can-get-sued-for-using-pics-on-your-blog.html#disqus_thread .

Now I’m off to search through all of my online images.

Edited comment –
After searching and deleting any images I didn’t have rights to, I found a background image for this blog on Creative Commons. The image requires attribution only, so my thanks go out to JanetR3 for the wonderful tree image.

About kimlajevardi

I am a forty-something-year-old writer. I'm currently drafting my second book. I've also written short stories, poems, and some non-fiction over the last several years. My interest in writing formed during countless hours with my nose tucked in books. I may have even been clutching a novel as I was born. :)
