Legal To Use A.net Photos As Desktop Background?

Mon Apr 08, 2013 3:59 pm

A.Net,

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.
