Hi all, say I write an article on microwaves and I want to put pictures of different microwaves that I've found on manufacturers sites, e.g. LG, Samsung, Panasonic etc. while writing about them, am I in violation of any copyright this way!?
Can you help me more info on that "fair use" thing and stuff like that? Thanks.
Copywrited photos or text don't fall under fair use unless the article is not for profit or educational in nature. If you get permission you can use them or of course you can take your own pictures.
It is doubtful anyone would raise a fuss, but I have actually had Sony come down hard on some pages I published that had product photos of one of thier products. They sent the internet police knocking at my inbox with a cease and decist notice. What's crazy is I was just trying to say how great my Sony plasma TV was.
Now I try to only use photos I took myself or I have permission to use. And never anything from Sony

Without mentioning any names of hubbers I have seen a lot of photos of celebrities that I doubt are in the public domain or royalty free and I doubt very much if permission to use them has been granted. So I am wondering how strict this place is on hubs that use photos taken from other sites and...
