Is it OK to use images of products in your hubs?
Does it mean copyright infringement?
Even if source is stated?
The easiest way around this is to use an eBay or Amazon capsule which includes that product or products.
Any photos of products have been taken by professional photographers, paid for by the manufacturer - probably at vast expense. So strictly speaking yes, it would be a copyright infringement to use the photo. However if your Hub is giving the product a rave review, I doubt if anyone would object.
I am not giving a review. All I want to do is to show some components of machines. The images are available on manufacturers' websites. I want to use the images while naming the source. Is it OK then?
If you're an affiliate then most probably the manufacturer allows that.
I have pretty good success asking permission to use images from site owners. Even images of famous people... (although the photographer was very surprised when he saw what I wanted his image of the Pope for...)
@ ASHWINSPGA and Julie:
OK. I am going to contact site owners. Lets wait for the results.

A couple of weeks ago, I realized that I had not read the ToS about image use correctly and had to go back to all of my hubs and make sure the images were cited properly and were available through the creative commons. I see a lot of other hubbers that do not cite their images correctly and...

If I write an article comparing skin products, can I use photos of the products from the internet website such as Lancome or Chanel? Are these photos in the public domain?

Hi guys! I asked this question on answers but haven't received an answer, so I thought I would try on here. I know that you are only allowed to use two images from each source, but I am hoping Flickr might be an exception! For me, it's where I get the majority of my images, and I'm certainly not...

I'm wondering if anyone can enlighten me on copyright and attribution issues with respect to products sold on Amazon. If I write a hub that focuses specifically on one or more Amazon products, where do I stand with respect to using the full-size images corresponding to the products I select for the...
