Solved Do Forums Only Have to Post Commercial License Free Images?

Post by xomysticalxo on September 11th 2017, 9:17 pm

I was wondering as the owner of http://thelandofutopia.forumotion.comif we only were allowed for copyright reasons to only post commercial license free images? Most of the images I am posting on my forum are made by me with tubes I have purchased with my license that I have put on the tags but there is one in particular that I am concerned about. For example, the one on the home page directly under the banner. It has a copyright on it. I don't remember where I got it. Would I be allowed to use it. My forum is not actually accepting members yet. I am still in the process of setting up. I haven't even registered with google or bing yet. Just a question. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If this has already been asked please forgive me. I looked for the answer and couldn't find it.

Thank you, Mystical

You should create the graphics you use on your forum. Even if they are free, the creator could send a litigation report to Forumotion claiming copyright infringement.

Hello if a items has a watermark or a copyright on it then you need to ask the maker of the item you want to use if you can not talk to them for what ever reason then you should not use it.

Now as for the boarder well yes you can make one for your own, it can be done useing a table
like this


Code:
[table border="6"][tr][td][/td]
[/tr]
[/table]
