Seeking copyright law consultation regarding online image service

$30-104 in hour

I am developing a project that includes an online service where users can specify the URL of an image or video hosted elsewhere on the internet. The online service downloads the image, creates a highly stylized version of the image (would not be mistaken for the original), and then sells the image to the user for a small fee.

This obviously raises potential copyright concerns. The two places I am considering for lowering legal risk is terms agreed to by the user when they are using the service, and having a takedown policy for compliance with DMCA Safe Harbor Protection for user generated content. I wanted to get a more informed legal opinion to make sure that we are on the right track with this and are avoiding any major risks before releasing this project. These may include the need to block IPs from certain countries, any language that we need to make sure to include in our terms, etc.


- Any other steps that would be helpful to take to avoid risk
