    I’m confused about how the photos are attributed for this challenge. It makes sense to me to include a (c) and a name if it’s a specific photographer’s photo. But if I’m scrolling around Google Maps and grab an image that way, that’s not really copyrighted to a specific person, is it? Is the name that you’re including from the person who suggested this vantage point?

      Hi Joy,

      You ask a good question. Google does ask that their images be credited, so even if they’re done by Google, you should (c) Google.

      Contributor images may be subject to additional copyright. When a contributor’s name appears, I have been listing them first, followed by Google.

      Here’s Google’s official guidelines: https://www.google.com/permissions/geoguidelines/attr-guide.html

      I didn’t discover this until I had been doing Pegman for some time. I never went back and added the copyright to older posts. As of yet, I haven’t been sued or hauled off to jail… My understanding is that where one is using others’ images for a personal blog, they’re unlikely to encounter copyright issues. If you start making a profit from them, that could be another matter.

      Thank you for asking this, Joy. I should probably add something to the About page for anyone else who has this question.

        Thanks for looking into this, Karen. From what it says in the Google guidelines, it looks like we should be (c) Google itself — or whatever it says in the bottom right corner. I’ll do that from now on.

        Update: Except that the Pegman view doesn’t have the (c) in the bottom right corner, like the other map views do. Now that I’m looking, I see the (c) with the person’s name in the upper left.
