Hey, are we allowed to use product images from Viglink sites to create an Amazon like module showcasing specific products. Like for instance instead of doing a text like......

You can find a terrific selection of Product X at -LINK->Walmart.com <--LINK

Can we do

 

PICTURE OF PRODUCT X              DESCRIPTION OF PRODUCT X          VIGLINK MERCHANT LINK

PICTURE OF PRODUCT X              DESCRIPTION OF PRODUCT X          VIGLINK MERCHANT LINK

PICTURE OF PRODUCT X              DESCRIPTION OF PRODUCT X          VIGLINK MERCHANT LINK

Hope that makes sense. 

 

Also, can we use site logos from Viglink sites that we are linking to?

 

By the way, no matter what the answer to this question is...Viglink = The Greatest Thing EVER!

Although I am not in a position to give you a definitive answer for VigLink, here's my take on this:

I would recommend you look up the affiliate policies for the merchants in question, because they all have different rules of engagement. Some may allow it, others may not. Just because you are promoting their products doesn't necessarily mean you are allowed to use their copyrighted materials or trademarks. 

If in doubt I would rather err on the side of caution. That is to say, if a merchant doesn't specifically allow it I would not assume it's ok. If it is really important I would recommend you contact the affiliate program manager of the merchant and just ask.

Okay, thanks. I will look for some that say it is okay and try it out on a couple of articles. I'm not even sure if it will make all that much difference, but I'm kinda throwing a bunch of monetization experiments at the wall to see what sticks.
