What’s the issue?
Rotary in Great Britain & Ireland has recently had to deal with two claims of copyright breaches where clubs had published pictures on their website for which they did not own the copyright. Copyright is becoming a big issue, particularly on the internet, with breaches now being enforced more frequently than they used to be. If you publish someone else’s content without permission, you could expect an invoice.
