It is most important for a blogger to keep his blog free from copyrighted infringement and let penalties remains away, so he use services like copyscape to check whether the content is copyrighted or not, but how to check if an image is copyrighted, images available on internet are copyrighted too whether it’s wallpaper or some other sort of graphics stuff because someone has created it and belongs to the creator/author, so if you download and use them on your personal blogs it’s illegal and violation of internet copyright laws, copyright issues really matter with blogs for Google Adsense affiliation.
Google Adsense strictly follows it policies and never allow any blog to enter Adsense program which publish copyrighted materials, it’s one of the main-factor Google doesn’t approve requests, so it really doesn’t matter if you change the name of file and publish, and now here the problem arises for newbie.
” How to use images on blog downloaded from internet without the copyrighted issues “
Answer is simple, create your own images and add your own copyrighted properties, it’s not possible to every time create a new featured image, I have seen many blogs which also use images available on net but in a different way, the legal way is:
- if you want to use any copyrighted material, take permission from its owner in written form and at least display courtesy below image, or is there any other way ? Yes there is with the help of Google itself, ok so without wasting any-more time let me show you the process, please follow the steps below:
There are 2 ways to check by:
- Uploading Images on images.google.com and search, and
- Through images source link/ image URL
>> Go to Google search page and click ‘Images‘, OR
>> In internet browser address-bar type ” images.google.com ” OR
>> Upload any Image from your computer.
>> Click on the icon ” Camera ” to use ‘search by image‘ feature as shown in the very first image of this article, now copy/paste the URL of an image to search and check.
In result page displayed below we can say all images found in Google search engines database which are exactly same as the searched image or similar to it, what I know is Google applies its algorithms and produce the best possible result based on:
- Size (Dimensions)
- Alt Tag
- Attributes (Image created on/ Pixel/ Bit depth/ Owner etc.)
