We don’t care where it comes from. We don’t link to the original source or make an effort to give credit to the photographer. We just need it, yo.
Except that is not so cool. Just like when you copy and paste text and don’t cite the source, it is stealing. So here is a smart, funny flow chart to guide you through the decision:
