There is no clear copyright statement or model release with those images, which is not the same thing as being copyright-free. If in doubt, don't.

Re: Posting images you found through Google on Cra

Thanks, pixelzombie, it's very nice of you for the fast reply, and the photos in your link are very good too. But I am afraid that I have to agree with Doug... I am in this for business, can't take a chance to be sued, even the chance is remote.

Too bad myself is not a good photographer, nor I could afford to hire one (and models) to shoot some samples. I remember there is a website (but I don't remember the site name anymore ...) with huge collections of everyday pictures. Every picture has a disclosure 1. free, 2. need to credit the owner 3. need to pay the owner etc. As I said, I don't mind to pay several bucks for a good one, but I need to be sure that I can use it commercially.

Thanks again~
