Thanks. That makes sense.

I guess the paid-for stock photos agency may indemnify you if there is trouble. Probably not so for the free stock photos.

Ha, ha, ha, yeah, no.  When uploading, you confirm you have all the necessary releases.  They will protect the buyer in the legalities and put everything on the contributor.  On the paid sites, at least.
The free ones take no responsibility, so the buyer can be taken to court for the use.  That's why it's not too smart to use content from the free sites.
