Hello!
I'm sarting an Anime website and there's a doubt i want to clear out to made things by the legal way.

I want to post some articles with images from anime episodes.

Some of them i have the dvd's.

I can post the images from my dvd's and don't have to reference any company or i can but i have to make a reference to the original productors?

What about if i post some images from anime i don't have?

I can't do it? I have to reference them?

Best regards

How you got it doesn't matter, why you're using it does.
Finding who the image actually belongs to might be very, very, very hard.

Unless you're dealing with advance copies and or publishing commercially don't worry too much.

Sticking appropriate pictures in to go with a review/news story is fine, as is it running in the background of a photo or something.

By way of a disclaimer you can add something the effect "If you own this image and do not wish wish it to shown on my site let me know and I'll take it down" on your site.

That wont cut it if you use someone's image and they don't want you to; they can still troll the **** out of you by going legal and getting you fined. Or at least it happened to a blogger I read about.
