The Internet is great for many reasons, including free stuff you can get: news, books, images, music, all the things that feed your creativity and your soul. I am a visual person and love vintage photographs. In 2007, while babysitting and working from home, I bought a large photo frame and started searching for historical images online to play non-stop 24/7. I love this stuff. So I found tens of thousands of astonishing images with planes, rockets, the Moon, cars, tanks, guns, sports, wars, fashion, waterskiing and more.
I’ve learned that I can’t post all those images online if I care about the law. OK. They still play on that obsolete photo frame in my kitchen. Now in 2017, same as in 2007, I can’t legally share those images online.
Wait! May things changed since 2007 – we have image boards, Instagram and sites like Pinterest. But nothing has changed in regards to the copyright law… I wonder how the Pinterest operates in terms of copyright.
