This is the only place i could think to ask this. What exactly are the copyright laws with regard to the online exchange of images? Also, what type of images do they apply to? just curious.

You come to a lawless society to ask about laws, I love you Randy.

Fucked if I know BTW.

Very generally speaking, there are fair use rights for all electronic images accept in the case of images that contain the copyright or trademark symbol.

The subject of copyright on images have to be policed by the owner so the best they can do is to mark electronic images they release. Otherwise they have to find the image and demand its removal as there is really no way to fully protect an unmarked image. Sharing of images via email, private message boards or on peer-to-peer networks are practically impossible to police.

The full copyright law can be found both on the Wikipedia and the Copyright Office's website:
