    Where did you get the pictures? Are they screenshots from their websites?

        You should ask the seller whether he obtained licenses for those images.

      Actually, screenshots are considered derivative works and are protected by copyright.

    If you created it then yes IF (see below). If you did not then NO!

    ADD: Even if you did create the derivative work you would still need licenses for each image you used in it.

    REMOVE: This was actually a really stupid question. (no such thing as a stupid question. stupid was not a good choice of words)

      Nah, no such thing.

      However, it does bother me that people ask legal questions here...it bothers me more that we answer them.

      This isn't a legal forum and we (well, most of us anyway) are not lawyers.

      We could get into some serious trouble dispensing flawed legal advice.

      Even if we say, "I'm not a lawyer," I'll bet there's some cunning lawyers out there who could cut us to ribbons in court for practicing law without a license.

    well... it's trademarked content. I'm fairly certain that all of the parties involved could have you shut down in a day if they wanted.

    I would also guess that whoever created the site ripped those images from the official sites and are being used illegally.

    Bottom line is you can't grab whatever you want from other sites on the net and use them for your own purposes.

      If, as you say, these pictures were sold as part of a wso, you should post a warning in the wso thread saying that the sites might include trademarked photos.

      Meanwhile, head over to a stock photos site and grab yourself some legitimate football related photos.

    I thought he meant the exact images in the post above. Now I see he wants to use the entire websites just like that. If it was just a screenshot of the website itself then he can use the screenshot....but the entire website??

    That is not a good idea.

    Some companies ignore trademark infringement. Others pursue it very aggressively.

    My brother had a BUNCH of college football sites. Some sites included the school name in the domain and within the header (i.e. LSUFanWarehouse.com - not a real example but the same idea), and others just included the team nickname. The NCAA came down on him pretty hard.

    The risk is real.

    I would read their terms and see if you can do that. It is better to be safe then sorry.

    If you are allowed to do that then go right ahead but if you are not allowed, then please don't.

    Please don't use these pictures unless you go ahead and read their term and conditions. If there is some strict opposite, then avoid doing so that to repent later.

    Copyrights is often obtained by most of the website owners so that their website remains unique forever and no one duplicates their design.
