    How does one go about using copyright images on their site, being that the site is built around products of a famous TV show and the only images may be copyrighted? I can't find any other images.....
    I was thinking to include a link to the source, would this be kosher?

    You have to contact the copyright holders and ask their permission.

    Images with a copyright? Honestly, I have never heard of anyone making a fuss about using someone images. But it does happens, people get sued.

    I won't say the site, but they were fined $4,000 for a $10.00 photo. It's ridiculous. Of course, everyone here in the U.S. sues everyone for just about anything, just to make a buck.

    I'd def. seek the permission. Simply linking back, or proclaiming "no copyright infringment intended!" will not help.
