We want to launch a website where we put information about movies, music and more. Each item (movie, music etc.) will have it's own page. On this page there will be some information about the item, such as actor, author, artist.
We would also like to have the cover image for the product. Though we don't know if this is legally right to do. We will make money from the website but NOT from the images. We will have ads that other companies put on our website. The ads and money doesn't have any connection to the images.
We have been searching for answers for some time now and I see different answers wherever I go.
Many of the answers we've found mentions fair use. Though it really is a grey area.
Some say that you always have to ask for permission first, while some say that you really don't have to.
- So what is the real answer?
- What is the worst thing that could happen?
