- Dan Kehn+1Er, I'm not a lawyer, but I think that downloading a full-sized image to your computer and then uploading it to Google+ for the purpose of sharing it may violate the owner's copyright (i.e., Fair Use does not apply).Sep 13, 2012
- Very good!
In Germany it is not allowed by law to share any image that's not created by yourself. Any sharing of other images may cause a warning letter from a lawyer with costs starting at EUR 500 but can be much higher, e.g. if you share a picture of a professional German photographer it may cost EUR 10,000, 15,000 or 20,000. There are many, many cases in Germany people had to pay by law and court.
If you take a picture in Germany from a public area and have not checked before, if you are allowed to take this picture, it may cost you a lot of money.
Remark: It's not allowed for any German to do this, not as private person and not commercially.Sep 13, 2012
- Wonder if taking a screenshot of the page the image is placed on, if it includes some or all of the surrounding page, is similarly a violation of German copyright law?Sep 13, 2012
- Never heard anything about troubles in Germany with thumbnails of a website/-page. Of course if you publish a screenshot that has the same size as the website or similar, you may violate German copyright law as you republish other content and pictures.Sep 14, 2012
