Title: News Reporting and images
Post by Weirfire on Jun 18th, 2005 at 7:54pm
I'm in the process of building a site that is football related. As part of the site I would like to display all the recent news headlines from the English Premiership.

I would be interested to find out if there are any legal implications of quoting various media articles to display these headlines and if it is possible to use media resources to give a brief description of the news in different words.

I would also be interested to know if there are any legal implications to displaying football players photographs whether it was my own photographs or from somewhere else.

Also, is there anywhere that you can obtain photographs for free to be used for commercial purposes but not to actually sell the photographs and if so, would anyone know of a resource that would include football related images?

A lot of questions for a Saturday afternoon  :)
