can i post copyrighted pictures in my hubpages?

  1. arun kuruvilla profile image80
    arun kuruvillaposted 8 years ago

    i think it is the best way to attract more people to your hub.
    There are millions of hot hollywood-bollywood  pictures available in sites. very simple to download from there and upload here!

      I reckon, as long as you mention the name of photographer and give a credit to him/her, then it would be alright.

      1. Marisa Wright profile image99
        Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Reproducing any photo without the photographer's express permission is legally and morally wrong.
        How would you feel if someone stole every article you wrote without asking?  A photographer is a creative person, just like you. Stealing their work displays a lack of integrity.

          I agree Marisa - sorta - (it's the "can you be a little pregnant"? question)

          Like text quotes or music promos (time limited to under 30 secs.), a picture or two, (moderation is the thought) with proper copywrite credits shouldn't be in the same category as plagurism(sp?) and mass duplication without credits.

            A single picture is the  entire work of art, a snippet of text or a sample of music is not.

            sure, someone is welcome to post 20 pixels of any of my artworks...but thats prob not the effect they are looking for

        no..as with any copyright or trademarked art you need express permission unless otherwise stated at the source

        Why should some fool be able to profit from anothers art and labor?

      Eric Graudinsposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      You're not allowed to use copyrighted pictured without the permission of the creator.

      But don't worry about that - Everyone's doing it, so it must be OK - right ??
      So how many do you reckon you can download in a week and post on Hubpages?

      A hundred thousand or so?
      Please hurry. Lots of people are eager to seeing these fantastic pictures here on hub pages.

      And you should be able to make thousands of dollars every week from all these pictures.
      And don't forget to make a new forum post for every new picture you add.

      Sheesh!

    the thing is, when i started a hubpage with hot-sexy-actress title, i got around 100 page views for that single hub in 1 day.Also there are many hubs in hubpages with only hot pictures and a hubscores of 80s.

    1. darkside profile image81
      darksideposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Are you here to make money or get a lot of visitors?

      Because while a lot of visitors usually equates to more revenue, the Adsense CPC for those in the entertainment keyword niche is super-super low, apparently.

      On the bright side though, you may never get Adsense approval so it won't matter.

        but what about hubscore and hubberscore?
        it will give you a lot of search engine traffic also

          weblogposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          Traffic is one factor, but not the only factor that decides hub score. You can hardly see picture hubs crossing 80 score.

            No..there are 100s of such hubs.
            Just search for hot pics..you will get atleast 1000 hubs with sexy indian pictures.my hub crossed 70 within 1 week.

              I'm not talking about the number of hubs, look at the scores. They will fall down even if you can see a raise at the beginning. Further, you can learn from your own experience.

              Best wishes smile

              Yeah, but according to your author HubScore, all your Hubs are marked as "no follow"...

                that hubs were just to test the traffic.I deleted those hubs after two weeks.And my hubscore down to 60s from 80s

    2. Marisa Wright profile image99
      Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Photo Hubs attract people who want to look at photos, not people who want to buy anything.

      If you're here to earn money, then photo Hubs are a complete waste of time, apart from boosting your ego.

      There is an old thread somewhere, where the HubPages team confirmed that sexy photo Hubs earn very badly compared to content-rich Hubs.

    girly_girl09posted 8 years ago

    What has happened to the forums?!?! lol

    Do photo hubs make money? (I cannot see how!!!...)

    If not, why do people continue to produce thousands of them? I don't get it! They are very pretty ladies, I will give them that.

    Anyways, that is a LOT of work (I would imagine) if you are only earning pennies. Just saying! big_smile

      Well all of the pages I just looked at had highly targeted adsense ads, despite the lack of text. So the title must account for a lot. And I found their hubs ranking on some interesting keywords. So maybe there's some backlinking going on somewhere.

      Girly-girl09 I think your thinking like an American. And don't get women in saris pics. I don't really either. But take some time to look at what's out there. I just did. (All kinds of economic markets fascinate me, this could be worthy of a Phd.)

      Apparently the Indian movie industry and fan base is huge and diverse. And these guys have just shown that they are an organized bunch, ready to take advantage of something in a matter of minutes.

      Anyways I'm finding their response to a new venue, fascinating.

      We'll see if the Hubpages Team find it so wonderful tomorrow.

        Photo hubs, in addition to hub views also get a lot of impressions from slideshow views. Slide pages and tag pages also get clicks.

          Nelle Hoxieposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          Yep, and I can see a lot of the blogging that's feeding the hubs now as well. So there's definitely a way to monetize this subject.

          And Hubpages forums get indexed so fast, they're just creating more and more publicity for themselves and their hubs.

          1. weblog profile image56
            weblogposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            I can see that, search engines show more love as forums get fresh content so fast.

    Obviously you will do whatever you want to do. If you could do so quietly and without annoying the mature hubbers who want to use this platform to publish articles, it would be most appreciated.

    I'll commit the name 'arun kuruvilla' to memory and if you ask any more advice I'll just pass on by.

    That's the spirit lad.

    BORING. BORING. BORING.

    And isn't it magical that you can make money by just cutting and pasting other people's stuff, without having to have a single original thought, or creating anything yourself.

    Don't worry about that Darkside, he's just a fuddy duddy who can't even learn how to cut and paste. (I've tried to teach him hundreds of times)
    He's just jealous of all the money you're going to make.

    I'm thinking about copying some of arun's photos and posting them in my own hubs. I'd like some of that traffic for myself! Can I do that? Is that okay for me to do???

    I thought HubPages had a rule about posting original content?

    1. arun kuruvilla profile image80

  9. blue dog profile image71
    blue dogposted 8 years ago

    maybe instead of posting absurdities, you should use this new tool called google.

    when you figure it out, google:

    copyright laws on the internet
    copyright and the internet
    copyright laws
    copyright laws information
    federal copyright laws
    u.s. and international copyright laws

    that should not only keep you busy, but answer your question.   two key points there: 1) copyright, and 2) laws

    dime a dozen.

    Get permission from the photographers that is what I do and they will normally ask about the topic and I give them the link to read , review and comment. Never ever due it without permission you wouldn't want someone to take your article from you. smile
