Are we allowed to have watermarked pictures in our hubs?


I'm confused. When I look at what makes a hub featured, it clearly states, legally obtained, no watermarks. In addition, when I made my own eternal on some of my personal photos, I was told I couldn't use them. Do why do I see hubs with watermarks?

    Thank you, Au fait. It is because of these cuisines that I am asking this question. My own watermark was no big deal. I just thought since it was my personal photo I could protect it from others, but, I HAVE reported watermarked photos with no result

    You may be right. I was also thinking of the verbiage. Does it only matter if it's too become featured it editor's choice?

    Thank you, Faith. I am okay about my own photos. I don't need the watermark but I am a little confused about the hubs that have watermarked pictures and are not asked to remove them.
