Default Credit cards with custom pictures; using the NextCard affiliate program

I have been thinking of starting a website that will have a gallery of cool designs to put on those custom credit cards. I would link it with the NextCard affiliate program.

There are two things I am wondering (I e-mailed affiliates@nextcard.com asking about these but they ignored me):

(1) How do copyright issues figure into this? Like, what if I want to use a copyrighted image in my gallery? Will NextCard disallow it? Can I get in trouble for it?

(2) What format (GIF, JPG) should image files intended to be placed on a credit card be? How many pixels wide and high? (Has anyone here actually gotten a picture NextCard who would know how the custom picture process works? I actually tried to apply for one myself but they rejected me because I have never borrowed money, owned a home, etc.)

Using copyrighted images without permission is a bad idea, especially in the context of using such content to earn money.

Most affiliate programs and ad networks specify in their contracts that they can/will reject sites that engage in copyright violations, although the main concern there is overt things like warez and some MP3 sites. They probably wouldn't even notice the kind of thing you mean, but it still isn't a good idea.

Also, be careful about using any kind of altered graphics, trademarks, belonging to the sponsor, without explicit permission from them.
