    Hi there. I am starting a new blog and I am wondering if I can use samples of famous photographs with out permission on the blog if I am doing so in editorial/critique fashion? It is my understanding that this is okay. Am I correct? Thanks!

    Yes, technically you're right.

    However, you can be sued by anyone for anything, even if you're totally in the right.

    Entities with deep pockets frequently use the courts as a means to stifle commentary.

    If you're not comfortable, you could always just provide a link to the photo you're discussing rather than host the image on your own website.
