In March 2011 I created a blog post about the Boiler Scrapage Scheme and to give it a bit of presence I did a quick Google Image search and grabbed an image of a man working on a central heating boiler that took my fancy. I don't remember where the image came from I just downloaded it from Google's results page and uploaded it my blog. Big mistake. Little did I know it was a licensable image.
