So I see people using pictures from various places and simply attributing to them under the photograph. Is that sufficient to avoid copyright and royalty issues? I have really been careful to avoid a problem to the point that is has handicapped my hubs.
In my opinion, some photos are allowed to use if you attribute to them properly e.g. flicker photos. I don't think copyrighted photos can be used even with attribution.
Edit: Some photos can be used without even attributing to them.
That is basically the way it works. I think you'll find that this thread answers your question.
Copyrighted photos can be used with attribution if you first contact the copyright holder and request permission to use the photos. Other than that...I usually use pictures out of my own collection, or from Wikimedia Commons because it's an easy way to not have to deal with copyright issues. Commons photos still have to be attributed to their creators, but are free for anyone to use.

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??

Another hubber alerted me to a blog that had lifted paragraphs from one of my hubs word for word without crediting me. What can I do about this? Thanks.
