Why can’t we use Google images on our website?

Children and teachers need to know about this sort of risk. Taking other people’s property without asking is theft and the internet is no exception!

There are photographers today making more from chasing infringers than from licensing their pictures.

The internet is now just part of modern life: children need to know how to use it and how to avoid misusing it.

People are often genuinely shocked when modern software tracks them down and they get hit with demands for big money.
