Many people using photo with no copyright

Many gigs contains with photo without copyright.Is it illegal?

Not really, it’s when you use copyrighted photos that don’t belong to you that you get in trouble. A public domain picture won’t get you in trouble. Of course, beware of using other people’s brand names. I had a gig called “I will do a $5 book review on Amazon” and it got removed by Fiverr. I don’t know if it was the Amazon logo I was using, or the word Amazon on my gig. Fiverr doesn’t always review gigs right away, but you don’t want to have a gig with 90 positive reviews removed, it’s very depressing having to start from scratch again. With my other gigs I’ve had no problems.

Why would it be illegal if there is no copyright?
