I’ve always been nervous about adding pictures or tips from other websites or blogs. There are lots of stories about lawsuits and general nastiness.
The blog at Posh Coworking addresses this issue with some great tips about how to do this without getting into trouble.

“Remember, if you have taken any type of content from another person or website such as direct quotes, content, images, videos, and/or Tweets, you need to make sure you properly attribute that information them. If you don’t, you could be setting yourself up for a lawsuit, especially if your blog is used for business or widely publicized posts. Don’t be afraid to use online content, just make sure you include credit where it’s due!”
