Yep! I look for copyrights on the pic. Some have the cartoonists name. Should probably stop using political cartoons.


I don't know, but it can be tricky.

The first thing to do is look at the url. If it has ap, nyt, latimes etc or any other indication that it is from the FR copyright list [<---HotLink Yum] in it then it cannot be posted at FR.

Also if you are in doubt, do a google image search with keywords relating to the photo and check to see if the pic in question is there from a copyrighted source.

Tinypic/tinyurl, photobucket etc can be suspicious because many people will take copyrighted pictures and put them there to get around law. It's still illegal and can get FR in trouble.

Happy New Year!

I see someone posted the address, lets give the USPS some business!
