    Hello, so i am writing a couple of reviews about different movies and tv shows on my blog and also writing a post about Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Actors). My question is how do i get images for the articles with breaking any copyright laws? :p

    For my other blog posts that need article images i use iStock, Pixels, etc.. where you can use their images and you dont even need to give a back link to them or anything, but these are all general images, animals, landscapes, etc.. they dont have any images of celebrates or films and shows. :p

    you can use the pictures if you reference them, it shows you arent taking them as if its ur work u are just using it and showing who made the photos etc . check this http://www.harvardgenerator.com/references/website follow the instructions and it will generate a reference for you. I got taught this in university because i had to use other peoples material online to write reports

    yes its a recognised system to stop you getting done for plagiarism. anybody can use it. the people who made it must be mentioned. i done it on cell motility were i had to use known scientists work and results

    I didn't know this. :D I'm going to finish those reviews then and just use Google Images to find good photos from the movies and link to the source(s) in the review. :D Thanks for the information. :D
