Dear debian-legal people,

I develop a software that downloads the daily picture from Bing or Windows Spotlight and set it as wallpaper on a X11 desktop environment.
Bing or Windows Spotlight are features of Microsoft.
The daily picture is obtained from or from
Each image appears to be copyrighted by its owner.

The software (DailyDesktopWallpaperPlus) not only downloads the picture, but the copyright and description of each image is stored in a local database.
The images are saved and can be reused later.
Is this legal? What do I have to consider?

My goal is that the software to be included by Debian.


Thanks in advance.

Best regards

Patrice Coni
