    Can i use images from google or the internet?
    What does "Images may be subject to copyright" mean? Can I use such images?

      It's not a good idea to use images from Google or the web because many have copyright protections.   When they do, it means you are using them illegally and can be sued by the owner of the image...and yes, this actually does happen.  If you use a Google image you have to make sure it is labeled for commercial use and modifications.  You would do better to use images from public domain sites such as Pixabay, Morguefile and Wikimedia Commons.  With this last one be sure to accredit the photos as per their instructions.

    Generally people quote images from the web with due acknowledgement of the source. It is the practice.

      I did but got this on my hubpages tips: "We noticed that you may be using Google Images as the source of one or more images in your article. We recommend only using images that are legal use".

        ok Thank you. so how do I get images for my articles? How do i identify the ones with CC and public domain?

          We just told you. Use sites like Pixabay. And, there's a list on that link. Have you read it?

          There are others not mentioned, such as Pexels and Unsplash. You can use Compfight to identify CC images on Flickr.

          Just do a little research. As a writer, it's part of the job smile

      And when someone does it with one of my images I send them a takedown notice, because I don't accept it at all.  Any more than you would accept them lifting your hub and using it for their own profit.

    No, you cannot use images from Google or that you find on the Internet if they don't have the correct license. You may get into legal or financial trouble for doing so. I suggest that you read this section of the HubPages Learning Center. https://hubpageshelp.com/content/Learni … -image-use

      Thank you very much but if I may ask, how do I identify images that have a Creative Commons (CC) or Public Domain license?

      1. AliciaC profile image98
        AliciaCposted 2 months agoin reply to this

        The license is often placed underneath or close to the photo. Sometimes a website states the licence of all of the photos on the site. Pixabay is a good site to use because the photos there have a public domain license. You need to be careful though because the site does include some images from Shutterstock at the top of each page, which we can't use.

        Many Wikipedia images have a Creative Commons license, but you need to check the license carefully there, too. Sometimes it's a non-commercial one, which means that we can't use it on our articles.

        Good luck with your hunt for images.

              Yes, completely. There are lots of other free image sites too. Have a look at that link I just posted.

      Sometimes manufacturers, service providers etc will give you permission to use photos from their website (assuming they own copyright on the photos and haven't sourced them from elsewhere). You need to email them and show them how you intend to use the photos. Usually they're happy to oblige, especially if it gives their product a plug.

        Google image search has a tool that allows you to search only for CC and PD images that can be used.  But makes sure you double check as it is not 100% accurate.
