It's usually safe to assume that any picture that is not your own or in a 'free pictures' library will be someone's copyright. Wherever possible, it's best to take your own pictures. It's also more fun. But where it's not possible, e.g. a historical hub about Henry VIII, borrowing a stock picture from Wiki probably isn't going to land you in trouble. When the picture isn't your own, it's best to credit the source.
I have a lot of free photos for you to use, here at HubPages.

Wikipedia uses copyright free photographs so we can use them also.
