What is the name of your state?LA

I am starting a business online. I have already obtained a federal tax I.D. number. I am selling one brand of item, but there are many different things available under this brand name. My first question is, when I put pictures on my website of these products, is it okay for to copy and paste them from other websites? They are pictures only, no company name or text of any kind. My other question is, I will obviously have the brand name on my site. How do I put the registered trademark symbol next to the brand name? And, The name of my business has my name in it so that I don't have to immediately get a DBA. Am I correct that I can do that and do business without having to have a DBA? I know these questions seem ridiculous and simple, but any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
