Hi all, say I write an article on microwaves and I want to put pictures of different microwaves that I've found on manufacturers sites, e.g. LG, Samsung, Panasonic etc. while writing about them, am I in violation of any copyright this way!?
Can you help me more info on that "fair use" thing and stuff like that? Thanks.
Copywrited photos or text don't fall under fair use unless the article is not for profit or educational in nature. If you get permission you can use them or of course you can take your own pictures.
It is doubtful anyone would raise a fuss, but I have actually had Sony come down hard on some pages I published that had product photos of one of thier products. They sent the internet police knocking at my inbox with a cease and decist notice. What's crazy is I was just trying to say how great my Sony plasma TV was.
Now I try to only use photos I took myself or I have permission to use. And never anything from Sony

HubPages is very firm in their rule to only use photos for which you have permission to use. Hypothetically, what happens if you break this rule? I've seen many people using images that are clearly not theirs to use and...
