    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.

    http://travel.yahoo.com/p-hotel-1915...lylCYjueX.FWoL

    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.
