Using Media, like images in Mame
You can find billions of images on the web. But once you are using them on a website usage rights come into play. Only select images that you have confirmed you have the permission to use them on your website according to the license sites. Include appropriate attribution (like the copyright notice) where it is necessary. Mame has no way of knowing if your usage is permitted, it is your responsibility to make sure you are using only licensed media and content.
On the web there are websites that sell so called stock images, like shutterstock.com, 123rf.com or fotolia.com. If you use their images make sure you obtain a license beforehand and mention them on your page according to their usage policy.
There are also websites that offer freely-usable images. We are using some of their images in our templates too.

Even though their images are freely-usable, make sure to follow and read their licenses.
