Why Use Facebox?

One question my friend Matt and I get frequently with Facebox, the pack of fifty royalty-free user avatars that we made last year, is “Why would I buy Facebox when I can just grab pictures from the Internet for free?” Here is one reason, pointed out to me by Andy Baio: TaskRabbit posted a new product mockup to their blog that included pictures swiped from the Internet without permission, including a few of Andy and other Internet-famous folks.


Andy is a generous guy and wasn’t much bothered by it, but will you be so lucky? Get Facebox today.

Update: Apparently this incident was enough to convince TaskRabbit designer Jeffrey Larrimore to use Facebox, as he just tweeted that his team has just purchased a license!
