Mark Posted January 6, 2014 Share Posted January 6, 2014 I wonder if anyone has any facts here (as opposed to principles and assumptions). I am trying to determine if "bandwidth theft" is a real crime in the face of the law. I am NOT thinking about any copyright issues here, just the bandwidth required to pull and display (on my site) an embedded image residing on a site not owned by me. I have read so many statements about "bandwidth theft", reasoning behind it (high load on the server etc), but all statements seem to be assumptions, with no legal facts behind them. Any facts and references much appreciated. Thanks! Mark ps I have a good reason for this question (I know I could simply upload the image, but that is not the point here). Example: my image pulled from the alamy site embedded here on the forum site (or on my site)……logo could be an issue, but let's assume the logo is not present for the sake of discussion): Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
