    I am trying to find definitive clarification on the issue of photo copyrights and hubs about entertainment. I am currently working on a series of TV trivia hubs and would love to include a photo of the show's cast, etc. in each Hub, but I don't want to step on any toes, esp. since I plan on utilizing ad revenue.

    Advice, por favor! smile

      Only because you asked.  Or any current law book can tell you.  I've sited the law book at the end of the hub which I used.

    Thanks for the replies. I have basically resolved to throw my hands up in the air on this one b/c, at least in my case, it does come down to the issue of images being so WIDELY used across the Internet that I wouldn't have a clue as to how to track down the original source. I have attributed a source for the location where I found the current photo I am using but it is by no means the original author. If, a year from now, I am singled out from 100,000+ other sources for my trivia quiz on HubPages and asked to take the photo down, then I will do so. ha.

      Just because everyone else does it is no excuse. How would you like people posting your articles all over the place?

      You can find some copyright-free celebrity photographs on Wikipedia and elsewhere. You could possibly email legitimate (ie official) websites and ask to use the photographs you want.

        Thank you, but I am not trying to take credit from anyone. I am trying to take the proper steps.

        My reply was in reference to the link from above. And the photo I am using is a widely used promotional photo, which upon further research, is also used in the cover of an Amazon product. And that is what I'm using. And I sourced it to Amazon. And used an affiliate link.

    This free service may be of some use, tracking photos through a reverse image search:

      Wow, look at you go. This site is amazing. I just tried out this page by uploaded the saved photo I am using onto the site. It traced it back to Amazon, but also said the the photo has been used by TVGuide and a few other websites. Also, the photo has been searched for over a billion and a half times.
