    Reblogged this on Cubby's Corner and commented:
    I wanted to reblog this fantastic information from Savvy Writers & E-Books. It had various articles regarding copyright infringement when we use pictures from the internet which may not be legal. It also lists many sites where we can all go and get free photos or purchase at a higher end. Great references for bloggers and writers alike. Enjoy!
