If I put a pic of Legolas from LOR as my avatar, will Newline, Peter Jackson, or Orlando Bloom come after me?

I just don't want to get sued for using a Legolas avatar.

Funny as this repartee is, the worry is viable, it is a violation of usage rights under International Copyright. So, in theory one can be sued by copyright holders [for Legolas] and - for individual and brand rights - by Orlando Bloom. It is still an open debate if this kind of personal use falls under the fair use exempt.

As long as one does not make money with an avatar, or denigrates the portrayed character/actor, and barristers have other things to do, we should be quite safe.

Evo2Me is right, hence the following on the upload page:

Quote:

The user warants that he has the rights to distribute the contents of the file. In the event of a third party dispute over the ownership of the file contents, the user accepts responsibility for the dispute and shall hold Invelos harmless.

If at any time the user determines that the contents of the file violate a copyright or are otherwise in violation of law, the user shall notify Invelos in writing so that Invelos may ensure its compliance.


However, bearing in Mind Disney hasn't tried to sue Skip yet, I'm guessing it's a slim possibility you will be sued.
