What kind of media can you use for reviews and other hubs about copyrighted material?
I've done a couple of hubs now that involved reviews (well, maybe roasts is more the word). I did a series on children's shows and now I'm finishing up one on Christmas songs. I'd like to dress them up with images or videos, but the only things that would make sense are screenshots, album covers, music videos, etc. In other words, stuff that as far as I can tell would violate Hubpages' policies on copyrighted content.
Is there any kind of provision for fair use? And if not, what would be a "legitimate" way to add visual interest to these kinds of hubs?
This is a tough one, and one I'm going to come up against myself, when I start to do my own reviews. The only thing I can think of doing is to use images of the broad categories - movie cameras, book shelves, writing utensils and media, paint palettes and brushes. Or some kind of graphic that changes, not with what's being reviewed but with my reaction to it.
