Copyright infringement is a major issue when it comes to publishing content over the internet. People copy and publish the work of others without even crediting them in any way. These days, no one gives a second thought to using someone else’s image, as if it was their own and earn all the credibility. Albeit, there are millions of pictures that can be downloaded for free (yeah that’s the beauty of internet), some people simply don’t want their work to be reused, or at least without their consent.
