A photo can still be copyrighted and shared but not used in a commercial application...I am no expert and if I were intending to use something which
didn't belong to me I would first attempt to gain permission first from the owner even if no cop;y right was attached. And depending on the terms of
service of some sites they may gain ownership in some uses and circumstances.
If the pictures or nay material is uploaded illegally then a person or entity can apply DMCA and require it to be removed and usually without any
investigations as to ownership so I would be careful and as least consult an attorney.
And any copyright is a civil matter, violate a copy right you can be taken to court. As for using a picture which someone posted it most likely would
be fair game but if you already have an injunction against use I would say leave it alone or simply attempt to gain permission to use it.
