Don't post photos from other websites, link them!

With talent blogs on web sites and Facebook pages, it's imperative that you don't "borrow" photos from other sources. Link them. From INSIDE RADIO: The copyright holding company Righthaven – which frequently targets media sites — has filed a copyright infringement suit against Citadel’s “News Talk 630” WPRO, Providence for posting a Denver Post photo on its website. 

The shot of a TSA enhanced pat-down was part of a listener create-a-caption contest.   The suit seeks $150,000 in damages. Citadel and WPRO have not yet filed their response to the allegations, filed last week in federal court in Las Vegas.
