Here’s another real example of why everyone should use caution when posting material without proper attribution and/or permission. According to CNN, the celebrity gossip site PerezHilton.com is the target of several lawsuits by various companies who found their images of celebrities posted without permission on the site. At least one company complained to the site’s hosting service and managed to convince the service to stop hosting the site because of the legal issues. The site moved to a different company earlier last week. The site’s administrator claims the use of the images falls under the fair use clause of copyright law because he’s a journalist.
