yeah, you're fine. i read somewhere or another that even official art is technically taboo and when it comes down to it, only your own art is okay, but i think that's taking it a little far and no company has ever come down on anyone's head for using official art for layouts, avatars, and etc. so yeah, official art for series is okay.

You know I tend to do this kind of stuff but I always give credit to the person that put the artical, like for instance
if I seen something that was cool or informative to what I was looking for, and I just copy it and post it somewhere I always give a link to where I got it from, in other words I don't take the credit but I do tend to just copy things to show others lol, hope that isn't offensive

Thanks! Your help is very much appreciated.
I will keep an eye out for the stuff from here, but I actually wanted you to know that the link that you have posted doesn't work. So the good news is that they're not using your stuff anymore. The bad news...? Well, nothing but that link doesn't work.

Hmm.. interesting topic...
To make it absolutely clear: I did not set off a nuclear device and then photograph it so that i could make my sig. I just found the pic on some random site, the information about the explosion too Ivy, i love you Ivy, i really do
Not to mention the avatar! Not only is it negative criticism on the entire Taco Bell fast food chain, but i just got it from someone through msn messenger! so that's a triple crime right there! Violation against taco bell, against the microsoft network and ofcourse the creator's copyright. Im a criminal! All this sunday school for nothing!
And then of course, there's 80% of all the avatars and sigs by all of this site's members: FMA screenshot images from the episodes, art related to FMA and etc. I can pretty much shoot myself on the fact that no one really bothered to get some kind of a written permission from the creators of FMA, the ppl that drew the animations and everyone else that were involved in the making of FMA. Heh.. yes.. I mean this is a fullmetal alchemist fansite and all... but when u break it down... what is really legal? is it legal to lie to your parents? is it legal to beat someone up because he/she's "deserves" it on some basis that you decide? Who's the criminal?
A good example of 0% respect for copyright laws is the famous blog culture, where 9 out of every 10 letters written are copied from a copyright protected source and presented as own material, and where most pictures that aren't of one's friends, are stolen.
So what's my conclusion on this subject? everyone's a criminal! the human race is tainted with evil intentions and mostly consists of misguided fools, that do stupid stuff because they didn't really know better.

The link in the first post it's working, just in case you didn't know.
I try to remember to give creit for things, like for one avatars. I make sure I sure the site lets me use them (they make them for others to use them) or I ask if I can use use. I would feel bad if I didn't.
