I am writing a new hub relating to the new game Portal 2. I would like to add pictures to better the hub, but I'm not sure that I can. I can see where I wouldn't be able to because I didn't create the video game myself. But if I posted a picture of a building I took, that would be fine, even though I didn't create the building.
I've found several other hubs that have used screen captures from games, but I want to make sure I can before I use them. Also, these would be screen captures I took myself, from the game.
That is like comparing apples and oranges. Buildings are not copyright protected, video games are. A screen capture is a form of duplication, which you cannot do on a significant scale without permission. There are some rules in US copyright law about "fair use," which may permit using screen captures for illustrative purposes, but only to a limited extent and to illustrate the contents.
