So far I've only used photos that I own/have saved on my computer. Since my current hub involves a TV show I'd like to include a photo but I'm unsure how to go about attaching the photo in a LEGAL and legitimate way.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
If you can find publicity photo of the series, use that. Those are free to use as long as you acknowledge the source and do not manipulate it.
If you have to illustrate a specific scene, just capture that scene and nothing else. AND attribute the source.
As long as you do not misrepresent the photo's source, and you are reasonably sure the photo can be used (like it's off their publicity department or website), you should be fine.
To be absolutely sure, you can write to the TV show's owners and request permission to use a photo, but who knows how long they'll take to respond. Still, you have to make a reasonable attempt (and document doing so).
If you use the image for a comparison, for a review, critique , it should be OK, since you should be afforded protection by the Fair Use Doctrine. You cannot however claim the image as being yours or alter it in any way. But nevertheless, you should always attempt to gain permission for its use.
Thats my problem too; pls Explain step by step "how to" 'about importing a photo via the web.
If you visit the TV show's official web site or the network, they should have a press section where they release photos. Not all shows and networks offer this service to the general public, but it is worth a try.
Thank you all for your advice! I think some more research is in order.

I am reading more and more Hubs where there are beautiful photos, but NO attribution to them. I just read one that clearly has a watermark of the person holding the copyright. When you look at the photos, it is clear they were taken by a professional photographer.What are your thoughts...

I know that when you complete a photo capsule, if you complete the source box and the source URL box, the finished capsule will have a link to the source webpage when you click on the text of the source (under the photo). I am trying to use a logo on a Hub. In requesting permission, the owner would...

Hi there, joined HP a little while ago but only just got round to writing my first hub. It is going to be an historical piece but seem to be spending most of my time trying to find who owns copyright to the images I would like to use, which are all dated between 1920's and 1950's, and then trying...
