How do I know that the pictures I included in my hubs are copyright? Where can we get photos that are free?
Go to microsoft.com and select there clip art - its free!
It may be free but only for personal use - not for use on Hubs.
The sites listed in the free stock photo Hub are good, but I find Flickr is the best because it covers a lot of unusual subjects.
You can't use just any photo - you have to use the Advanced Search, and click on "Creative Commons" and "for commercial use". That will give you all the photos you can use.
Then in your Hub, you must thank the photographer and include a hyperlink to their Photostream. I usually do that at the end of my Hub.
There is also something called wikipedia commons with lots of free photos.
There is also a great hub somewhere about places to get images. Just have a search for it
Actually, Microsoft clip art is for personal use only, not for posting on the Internet.
This is a good hub on free stock photography

Is it okay with you for others to pin your hub photos on Pinterest?I don't mind others pinning my photos, but after reading some hub articles on this subject, I think a mechanism is needed to protect those of us that do. There is an option available for us to do this on most all hubs,...
