How to avoid copywrite infringement when obtaining pictures and videos for my hubs? Consequences?


This question has several parts. I'm worried about the copywrite issues involved with pictures and videos that I obtain on the web. How do I know if an image that I find on Google images is copywrited? Should I name the source of my photos beneath the photos in my hubs? Hubpages makes it so easy to embed videos from youtube.com... is there a danger of copywrite infringement when doing this, and how can I avoid it? What are the possible consequences of accidental copywrite infringement in these areas? Can I lose my AdSense account? Can I lose my HubPages account? Can I face criminal charges?
