    Question on Copyright
    I have a question regarding copyright issues. I have been using the Yahoo! Travel website and I notice that they use hotel photos that I presume is copied from the hotel website.

    Is Yahoo violating any copyrights or is it ok to use just one photo from the official site?

    I'm asking because I'm planning to add a featured hotel section on my website where I will need to use one hotel photo and a write-up with a link to the hotel site.

    Anyone familiar with copyright laws?

    If the photo is not offered as part of an affiliate link there is a good chance you'd eventually wish you had asked the owner for permission.

    They should want the exposure, but not all copyright owners are that intelligent.
