Are there any copyright infringement issues with using giphy images in Teams? Many of them come from common TV shows or cartoons. Is it legal to use those?

It depends where you are using them , If you are posting on relative area as they are in you probably get copywriter issue .

My question pertains to Office 365. So if I'm using the out of the box giphy images in Teams inside my tenant are there any copyright infringement issues?  The modern team sites will search the web for images but only returns Creative Commons licensed images. Giphy returns items with commercial images. Are they legal to use?

Using Gifs of copyrighted material in team chat are considered 'fair-use', like cutting pictures out of a magazine. I don't think this has been tested legally, so there is some greyness.

 

Also it's often quoted that as the gif is served by giphy it would be them that would need to defend a case of copyright infringement.
