: I'm sending out a newsletter to about 400 people in the US. I'd like to use a photo off a Russian web site that is copyrighted. Can I use the photo in the US as long as it is not for profit or resale? The sight is in Russian and I don't know how I would ask for permission, even if required to do so. Can you tell me what I need to do in compliance with the law.
There is one thing infringing and another being sued for infringing. What you propose sound like infringement to me.
There are unanswered questions about you exposure to liability.
