Advice on a TikTok

I want to make a TikTok role playing my experience as a restaurant worker working to-go.
I want to use a stock image of a restaurant to-go area as the green screen background.
I googled it and found a picture, but it seemed like I needed to license the picture or something.
Anyway, is it like….legal to use a random picture I find on the internet and use it as a green screen background on a TikTok?
Also, if so, can someone help me find a good picture of a restaurant to-go area to use for my to be made TikTok.

I understand I use GAF in the strangest of ways, but thanks for the help.

TikTok is the best social media platform dont listen to these heathens

You shouldn't have any issues with using a picture you download off the net as your background. If you're really concerned then just buy an image from a stock image depository

In practice probably. In theory - 100% illegal if you do not know if the picture is under a copyright. It's you task as the one using the picture to make sure you are in accordance with the law.

See the post above you.

TikTok is literally huge in breaking musical artists right now.
I’m really tempted to drop money just be on the safe side.
I’m that confident that this post will blow up.


Just be sure to use the cringest song ever playing in the background when you do find it

It’s actually an a capella rap that I’m going to do…

I don’t wanna get caught slipping. Are copyright claims in green screen background images in TikTok’s a thing though????

Nobody knows, same as with everything else - some people get slapped with copyright for some thing they used without permission, others do it for months and years without consequences.

better take a photo of an actual restaurant so you won't face any issue. Also best of luck with your tik tok video and don't listen to the NO crowd.

Well I already judged you OP... so what you're looking for are images under free commercial use. Look it up, there a couple of site where publish this kind of images.

Forst and foremost you need to make the 'Simple Dimple' and 'Why Aren't You in Uniform' challenges vids, if those two don't click you can forget about TikTok.

I recommend that "oh no, oh no, oh no no no no no" song. People will be surprised with your deep cut from the 1960s Shangri-la's and it will also clue them in to the fact that something bad has happened.

I finished it. I was really hoping my fellow server community was going to hook on to it.
It flopped.
Time to make a dancing video.
