Hi all. I am at the point of needing to practise what I have learned before I start forgetting it, and was thinking that I could put the practice towards my portfolio that I will be showing to prospective employers. With that in mind I have a few questions:
- can I make websites for completely fictional businesses/people etc or do they need to be real? do I need to say that it is fictional?
- can I use google images on sites (ie google pictures of food for a food shop site) or do I need to use my own? do I need to state where images are from?
- can I look at a website online and try to recreate it without using any of their code? this also applies to some of the examples that I have worked through in the courses. how much of it is mine? do I need to say where I got the idea from?
Thank you for your help with this. I just don’t want to spend ages on things and then realise that I can’t use them due to violations etc.
