Using Microsoft Clip Art in your Blog Posts? Better contact your copyright attorney.
If you are like me I had been using the Clip Art that came with my Microsoft Office. But because of all the posts and talk lately on Active Rain about copyrights and trademarks I decided to search out what Microsoft had to say on their site about the use of their images.
This is what the site says:
Published: April 26, 2005 | Updated: June 4, 2008
Microsoft products, services, and Web content—including images, text, and software downloads (collectively, "Products and Services")—are owned by Microsoft Corporation and/or by Microsoft vendors, who have given Microsoft permission to use the Products and Services.

For more information, consult your copyright attorney.
Now I don’t know about you but I for one do not want to have to consult my copyright attorney because I used an image from Microsoft. So, please take the time to read all the fine print before using ANY image that is not your own!!!!
