What are the rules for using photos of celebrities in your hubs?
I have seen a lot of hubs on celebrities and many have photos in them. Are there certain photos that are considered okay to use? How do you find these photos and know that they are allowable? I would ask the same thing about t.v. shows and movies, as well. What are the rules for using movie/television show photos.
I just use Wiki photos. These are pictures that are available for public use because they are in the public domain. You are on shaky ground if you copy photos from commercial sites. Finding pics that are not copyrighted for certain shows/celebrities may be a problem.
You can contact the owners of sites that publish photos and ask if you can use them. This works in some cases. Avoid using copyrighted materials.
