I have been proving the URL to photos that I use from Flickr...
I see some hubs that have web photos but no credit. I thought
you had to give photo credit to any photo that isnt yours...
Do I not need to give a link?
You always give credit to pics but you do not have to provide a link.
You don't have to give a live hyperlink but personally, I think it's only polite.
Some people don't know the copyright rules, and some people know them but don't give a #%&^!
It is part of professional/business ethics that to provide credit to photos that we publish which are not our property. In some cases the original title-holder of the photo may mandate that credit be given. Then it is mandatory to give photo credit when we use it, else it may be a violation of copyright. In some cases, free copying may be prohibited. In that case, using the photo without permision will be a blatant infringemnt of copyright. Hubpages, and sometimes Google also, may take action.

We added the Pinterest "Pin It" button to the small collection of popular social-sharing buttons at the top of Hubs on Thursday. Pinterest has rapidly become one of the largest social media traffic drivers to...

A discussion started about this on the end of another thread, but it's got buried. I was checking an early Hub today and it reminded me, because I'd used a photo from another website. At that time, I didn't...
