Where do you get pictures for your hubs? What are the rules of using pictures from other websites? I get mine from photo bucket because I know those are legal.
I have used my own pictures including a few I have taken from an airplane.
I usually do a search on free to use graphics then check the sites TOS to be sure they are actually free.
Good approach. All photos and graphics on the internet are copyright, unless the site's TOS says otherwise.
A lot of people assume it works the other way around, and everything is fair game unless the site specifically says it's copyright. Not so!
Personally, I use flickr.com for almost all my pictures. Use the Advanced Search, tick "Creative Commons" and "for commercial use" and you'll get lots of photos. All you have to do is credit the photographer - I usually do that by giving them a hyperlink in the credits at the end of my Hub.

Regarding the latest newsletter about incorrectly crediting images, is it suggested that we take down all images that are not copyrighted or cites "google images" or "microsoft images." Should we, who are guilty, expect a violation email soon? Or worse, get idled?

I just ran across a site, radikewl dot com, that had copied another hubber's hub that I had a comment on. The entire hub, including comments, is translated into Spanish. No author is named. That led me to do a search for my own hubs on that site, and I found many of them, also translated into...

I have a hub already to go but I am reluctant to publish it because I am using pictures that have been sent for me to use on my hub with permission from the photographer. What I want to know is whether or not it is okay to provide a link to the photographer's website acknowledging that as...

The question of whether poetry Hubs should have 400-word minimums came up in this thread a few minutes ago:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/70203#post1528809I've been puzzling about what to do with poetry Hubs I've found while hopping. I haven't flagged any of them, because poetry is a unique...
