I was wondering in a case of a Wallpaper site that is static “photos are not submitted by users”.
How can I go about copyright issues? I will be choosing photos from internet from different sources and make them available on my site for download.
Things you might need to know:
I wont claim ownership over any photo.
I wont remove any logo or watermark (i might crop image or apply a filter only).
In Contact Us page i will say something like (If you are an owner of a photo and you would like it to be removed you can contact us).
I will add my website url to all photos (without removing original watermark if any).
In the future, I will implement advertisement to generate income from traffic.
I have seen a wallpaper site that writes this in footer “All images remain property of their original owners”.
What are your thoughts and suggestions? Am I doing anything wrong? how to go about it?
