Are Post Mortem (Historical Death) Photos Allowed?
I'm not finding much information; but I'm wondering if post mortem photos are allowed with hubpages AND google, because it seems to dance on the line. I'm referring to early post mortem photography that I would use in an upcoming historical hub. What do you guys think?
I think as long as they're not horribly macabre or graphic it should be OK. Most historical postmortem photographs are very old, black and white, and therefore quite blurry anyway. For example, there are several pictures which are not at all graphic, and which I wouldn't have a problem using on one of my own hubs, of the men who were shot at the O.K. Corral. More recently, I wouldn't have a problem using a picture of Pope John Paul II lying in state because everything was done very respectfully. Just use your best judgement and I think it should be alright.
If I am wrong and there is some specific rule against this, I hope someone will correct me. But then again, that sort of answers your question right there: I haven't come across anything that says NOT to use these photos either.
I can't yes or no, but like LastRose, I'd think as long as they're not to graphic they'd be ok to use. I think the other consideration, which yours would fit, would be that they're specific to your hub instead of someone just posting them for the shock value.

I see Hubs where beautiful photos are used and are from Pinterest. The photos are usually credited as being from Pins. Are we allowed to use those photos??

Was I slapped down? Tried to post and a picture of a strange woman appeared wearing a badge and riding some sort of motorized vehicle saying I wasn't allowed to post.
