Copyright laws on a celebrity's picture?
Does anyone know if I have to go to a specific sight to get free pictures of celebrities or if I can just go to, say peoplemag.com, and copy them? I don't want to go to jail, so please know what you are talking about when you answer.
You probably wouldn't go to jail, but you could get sued. Go to http://commons.wikimedia.org to get some of your celeb images. They're free to use, and if you click "use this file on the web" it will give you the correct attribution and licensing information. I'm going back through all my old Hubs and getting free use images. They have them for most of the more popular celebs.
What about brands of things you can buy, like Lysol or Charmin? How do you get pictures of them?

This might seem like a silly question, but I have to be sure. If I pause, for example, a Tom and Jerry episode and take a screenshot (because, let's say, I want to have a picture of Tom chasing Jerry in my hub), is it...
