I am not an intellectual property lawyer, so take the following with a grain of salt. IMDb cannot use a poster unless it has permission from the copyright owners or the poster is in the public domain.

To be honest if they wanted to use a poster, they could do claiming fair use as Wikipedia do.

The reason they won't make the poster service free is because it is part of IMDB's revenue stream. Just because we'd like something for free doesn't mean a business should go along with it. One of my friends believes men shouldn't have to pay for razors, unfortunately shops disagree and so he is not allowed into quite a lot of supermarkets.
