If I purchase an image of a celebirty from "stock images company / photographer" who claim to have taken that picture and then If I publish this purchased image(s) onto a website in image gallery or an informative article. Can the celebrity file a copyright claim for not taking permission?
Non commercial means that the image should not be retouched and/or mulilated. Morever you should acknowledge the you purchased the image from a commercial seller and that the image is copyrighted automatically of it being that of a celebrity as celebrities come within the public domain. Study images in Encarta, Brittannica etc.
Celebrities thrive on propaganda and pay heavily for promoting themselves. However for commercial use ,you have to acknowldge that you purchased it from the source from where you purchased it. DO NOT MUTILATE OR RETOUCH THE IMAGE AS THAT'LL LAND YOU IN TROUBLE. What is editorial use?
