    Adsense in image hosting sites - okay?

    Lately, I'm seeing a large number of image hosting sites for sale on DigitalPoint forum and SitePoint forum. Most of the owners use Adsense above and/or below the images.

    I just want to know is it okay to have Adsense on image hosting sites?
    (assuming the owner does not own the image)

    Adsense policy on copyright material -
    Copyrighted Material
    AdSense publishers may not display Google ads on webpages with content protected by copyright law unless they have the necessary legal rights to display that content.
    One of the points mentioned under content guidelines -
    Any other content that is illegal, promotes illegal activity or infringes on the legal rights of others

    Most image sites allow auto approved images so in doing so anyone can upload adult content images and if adsense shows on a page with these images it is a 100% violation. If you have script that shows no ads on a page with an image until you flag it in the admin adult or non adult then the script shows adsense or another ad network would be legal.

    These are the same people who make the statement Google hasnt said anything yet. Well they dont when the day comes and they find out there ads are on a adult page then you can be certian the account will be banned. If the content is iffy then you might get lucky and only the site will be banned.

    Hmm, ignore adult images. What if the ads are displayed on a page with copyrighted image of an actress/actor? Many celebrity galleries, blogs dealing with celebrities place adsense on pages which contain copyrighted images. So are they violating the terms of Adsense?
