With all the stories out there of internet users getting sued for using illegal copyrighted images of a celebrity without the photographer's permission, I need to get a question cleared of so I never get sued. Since I provide web design services, if a client were to come to me to design them a layout featuring Christina Aguilera and they provided me with the pictures, is that illegal? What if the client had purchased the images with an image account? Are those images still illegal?
Now say the client already designed the layout and just wanted me to code it for them. Is me coding their illegal layout illegal?
And what if I put in my disclaimer of my site and portfolio that my job was to only provide a service, not to steal images.
Please help clarify! Thank you.
