Pictures on your blog. Are you violating copyright?

Interesting post over on the blog, For the Fearless Romantic.  She has been sued for using a picture from Goggle Images.

We all know that using pictures in your blog posts makes them more attractive, more interesting to read. So we all jump over to Google Images to find one. A simple click or two and -- presto change -- it's imbedded into your blog entry.  I mean, why would a picture be there if it wasn't being offered to others?  Well, she doesn't know the answer to that, but she does provide a lot of answers about how you can avoid violating the copyright of the photographers who posted the pictures.
