Why can't we use Google images on our website? | Money | The Guardian

Why can't we use Google images on our website? | Money | The Guardian:

"In August 2010 my sister asked me to design a website for her hair and beauty salon.

We found two striking images on Google and used them. We rejected those which had "copyright" or similar words, or where the identity of the model was obvious.

Three months later, Getty Images wrote claiming the photos were subject to its copyright. She was asked to remove them immediately and to cease and desist from further use. She was also billed £950 for "unpaid licence fees", an enormous sum for a local business."
