I am new here and wondered what the copywrite rules are. Can I put videos, pictures etc. on my Hubpages without their permission?
It is generally a good idea to get copyright information, but most pictures online are so regurgitated that it makes tracking down copyright info hard. What I'm going to start implementing on my hubs is a separate capsule to give the information of where I found my pictures. With videos, you have to insert the link into the video capsule, so you're good to go to add any from the supported sites as-is.
That's a very good idea, gamergirl. I might just start doing that myself. Even with pictures I get from a stock photography site with usernames, like they ask for in Associated Content.
I always try to find copyright information on where I get pictures and videos. Even some text. Most people use resources to write things, so therefore they should be credited to. But alas most don't care in the end...Sad sometimes. At least with videos they can link to who made it. Personally, I believe there are so many graphics around, that they don't need copyright information (they do, but its just so common not to now that people don't). It's just nice to know that the creator of that image etc is given credit for it somehow.
I didn't know I had a wife at all!
Sorry dear, I must have nodded off some time before the engagement. But am a thoroughly modern husband, and do not object to my wife speaking in public.
I use images from Flickr. I always use the Advanced Search and click both "for commercial use" and "Creative Commons" to be on the safe side. Even so, I always have lots of choice, so I rarely bother going anywhere else.
With Flickr images, you must credit the photographer and provide a link to their Photostream. I usually do that at the end of the Hub.
I know you can download anything you like on the internet, but I take the view that I'd hate it if people copied my stuff without permission, so why should I do it to anyone else?

Have you ever noticed that you spend more time allocating pictures and images for your hubs than you do actually writing it?
