    I have been proving the URL to photos that I use from Flickr...
    I see some hubs that have web photos but no credit. I thought

    you had to give photo credit to any photo that isnt yours...
    Do I not need to give a link?

      You always give credit to pics but you do not have to provide a link.

      You don't have to give a live hyperlink but personally, I think it's only polite. 

      Some people don't know the copyright rules, and some people know them but don't give a #%&^!

    It is part of professional/business ethics that to provide credit to photos that we publish which are not our property.  In some cases the original title-holder of the photo may mandate that credit be given.  Then it is mandatory to give photo credit when we use it, else it may be a violation of copyright.  In some cases, free copying may be prohibited.  In that case, using the photo without permision will be a blatant infringemnt of copyright.  Hubpages, and sometimes Google also, may take action.
