Movies image comes under copyright ?
hello hubbers, i'm going to make a new hub about a movie review and I just want to know that if I add that movie photo ( poster ) does it comes under copyright and stuff ?
please help, thanks
Yes of course it is most likely copyrighted. That is if this movie was released in the last 30 or so years. (I forget default copyright period) Otherwise the copyright could have expired and now the image is in the public domain,
I suggest reading US copyright law: http://www.copyright.gov/title17/ and the plain English FAQ version: http://www.copyright.gov/help/faq/faq-general.html
I'm not sure if you could legally use the image under the fair use exclusion or not though: http://www.copyright.gov/fls/fl102.html
Sections 107-118 are here: http://www.copyright.gov/title17/92chap1.pdf
When unsure the best course of action is to obtain permission from the copyright holder. This would probably be very difficult and time consuming to be honest.
Hopefully these links will help you to answer your own questions.
