The Copyright act gives the copyright owner the exclusive right to reproduce or modify their work, and to exclude others from doing so. Copying includes copying or saving their image to your hard drive, or copying to other mediums, like scanning a photo from a book and turning it into a JPEG file.
Modifying a work, say by cropping, coloring, distorting, enlarging, etc. is not a way around this law. Creating a derivative work "or any other form in which a work may be recast, transformed or adapted" is an infringement.
With that facts I found on the web regarding photos copyright..if a person
doesn't originally own or made it.. i guess it's better to just copy the
source..that will give the real owner his right to be known as the
real and legitimate owner of that certain photo..

I think the real issue is if the the "stolen" image is used to make money...that's when they care. RCG would have covered it's rear if this was an issue. I'm sure they've thought about it.
