Re-use of Images on the Web

Ag Comm photo pageDid you know that you aren't free to re-use any image that's posted on the web, due to copyright restrictions? In this video from a few years ago I explained why not.

Apparently people are still "stealing" images from the web for their own use so Google has recently made it more difficult for people to save images.

Ag Comm strongly recommends images or videos to complement your web or social media content. Posts and pages with visuals or videos get significantly more traffic than those without. Visuals make content more appealing.

To avoid using copyrighted videos and photos, please visit Ag Comm's Photos and Illustrations page for a list of free resources you can use to complement your web content.

Even if the videos or photos are "free to use," it's a good idea to credit them so the origin can be traced back.
