I’m always keen to write about the many great crafters I found over the wonderful blog and flickr world, but I have a big question here:

Do I need to inform the owner of the use of their shop item photos before I post? I will save a copy of the photos on my own pc before I upload to my blog, but do I still need to ask for permission? Am I infringing anyone’s copyrights if I just go ahead to post the pictures?

This issue is so confusing, I would appreciate any comments and help. Thank you.
