I have a Photo of the new 'solar impulse' plane that I want to use on my latest hub. I looked every but could only find the photo on news sites or their official site.
I don't think I can use this, as it might an infringement.
Is there anyway I can get permission?
Any suggestion would be helpful.
I would contact the news site.
If you can't get permission that way, you could try to find it on a site like Flickr which might have the picture available under a Creative Commons license (which usually ask that you provide attribution).
usually new products can be found as 'press releases" or "press photos" .. most likely the pics on the site were open game - but you always check each sites small print (commercial and product sites) to be sure they encourage use
I know there are some government sites that allow you to use photos. You might find it on this site:

I would just put the guys Wikipedia user name and maybe give the link where you found the picture.

This is nothing new, just new to me: I was shocked to see the message that one of my quizzes had been taken a few times on HubPages but 20-some times 'on other sites'. I never gave permission for my work to be...

I see Hubs where beautiful photos are used and are from Pinterest. The photos are usually credited as being from Pins. Are we allowed to use those photos??
