So if this is with in the law, what is the difference then somebody going in with video camara, filming and posting clips that on the web. If you have answer let me know.
Aside from copyright, there is unfair competition and the rights of the individuals whose images are used as well at the rights of the creators of the images. When some one gives you a fast answer that is important to you make the give you a legal opinion to back it up and check it with your IP lawyer that you can trust.
