    Google is using pics without permission

    I have a question for you guys that have general knowledge about the rights to photographs.

    How is it that Google can use my pics without permission?

    I'm not necessarily complaining, but at the same time, it makes me wonder.

    Was doing some searches for various things and have seen many of my photos as examples of certain items one might search for.

    This may seem like a dumb question, but then again, there are photographers who charge for the use of their pics.

    I know someone who found out that a company related to farm tractors used a pic of his restored tractor on the front of their catalog. They never asked for permission to do this.

    How exactly are they using it? If you are referring to it coming up on their search engine they aren't really using it they are just providing a link to access your pictures.

    Yes they are using them to link to searches. I never really gave it much thought until I saw picture after picture of various tractors and heavy equipment.

    I should have said that the pics show up just be typing in search criteria. You don't have to click on anything.

    It's legal for them because they are just embedding a link to your property within their site. The actual information (be it words or pictures) is still only housed in the original location.

    Thank you. Sometimes I have a habit of questioning things that others just accept without asking why.
