Is it legal to use photos from A.Net as desktop backgrounds. I download images from the site and use them as my wallpaper. If someone asks, I tell them the site it came from and clearly tell them that I did not take the picture. I love these pictures as my desktop background but I would hate to be infringing on copyright laws.

Quoting aerovtp (Thread starter):

The rules are explained here:


You have limited rights to personally view the images with your web browser and to use them as your personal computer wallpaper (or background image) on your own computer. These photos may not otherwise be reproduced, distributed, cropped, resized, or otherwise altered without the written permission of the photographer. No commercial use of these photos may be made in any way. All rights are reserved.
You may not use these photos on any web page, commercial or non-commercial, for profit or non-profit, without written permission from the photographer. You may however link to the photos in the manner described below.

Hope that helps.
