  • Is It Tacky to "Steal" Photos from Abandoned Sites?

    I'm working on a gallery fansite for a celebrity who has had active fansites in the past. None of them have been updated in the last two years. Is it tacky to "steal" images from their abandoned site to fill out the older pages on my new site? They're images from various sources around the internet, not personal or exclusive photos.

    That's one of those things no one has a clear answer for. Personally I feel it's fair game as they don't own those images to begin with and if those sites go offline then fans cannot find anything. If you don't get from them then it will just be another website/forum.

      Personally, I think it's okay as long as you leave any fansite tags intact.
