I have just joined hubpages and I'm not sure what the rules are regarding content of a hub. Can I get a picture from google images and paste it into a hub? can i attach a video from youtube or do i need special permission? These answers are probably somewhere in FAQ's but i haven't found them. Thanks for any help.
You have to make sure the pictures from Google images are copyright free or give permission for you to post them. You can link to the YouTube videos without asking for permission.
One thing about videos to consider is to be sure the video content is actually owned by the person who uploaded the video, otherwise you too could be violating copyright laws.
An example of this could be a video which uses music which the video-maker has helped themselves to, such as a favourite song perhaps. Liking a song does not bestow the legal right to use it, and while most video hosting sites ask that users comply with copyright laws, some users somehow imagine this doesn't apply to them.
If the YouTube video is flagged for violations it will be removed from YouTube and you will get a notification in your "my account" page that there is a problem with the video. You will not face any actions because you embedded it on HubPages.
What about the pictures. Like photo bucket or google? Can we go there and grab them or do we have to have an account and permission?
Don't use images from Photobucket. The great majority of those images were stolen from the original copyright holder.
As I posted on another thread, strictly speaking you can use Photobucket photos, but it's the same as buying a plasma TV from the back of someone's van, even though you know it's stolen.
If you're a writer, I assume you wouldn't want to steal the work of another creative artist (a photographer), even third-hand.
You can search Google Images filtered by licence (you want to select "for commercial use") - but it's not very reliable. Google states it's up to you to check the copyright before you use the photo.
I use Flickr (use the Advanced Search, click Creative Commons and for commercial use at the bottom). Then all you have to do is thank the photographer in your text and include a link to their photostream.
You cant 'paste' pictures in your hub but you can use the photo capsule! Just thought it might help! x

Like a movie clip or a song lyrics video. I know the internet...

Is pinning to Pinterest a violation of copyright laws?Unless you are pinning your own work and pin someone else's work, you might be violating copyright as you do not own the rights to this work.

I'm planning a hub about one particular actor in one particular scene of a movie. Without a visual representation of the actor in the scene the article would be meaningless, but no free or non-copyrighted photos appear to exist. To me this seems a classic case for Fair Use, as reflected in this...
