I have pictures made before 1922. If I post them for free downloads on HUB pages, would I be breaking any rules or copyright laws?
What do you think?
Firstly, you can't do downloads in any form on Hubpages. All you can do is add them to articles using a photo capsule.
Secondly, where are the photos from? The internet, friends/family, a local photography club etc?
If you own the photos or are they are from your family, they are legally yours and you can do what you want with them. If they are owned by someone else, you'd need to ask their advice or add some text under the photo that attributes the photo to them.
Remember - if you put them on the internet other people may end up using them without your permission, like anything you place publicly online.
What I mean is to offer pictures to other people through Hubpages. (Free, for use in their own hubs or blogs.)
I know for a fact that just because I own photos or pictures, it DOES NOT allow me to publish them. (Unless, of course, they were made before 1922 and now considered public.) You have to look at the rights of the creator/artist.
What I wanted to know is what HubPages' policy on posting someone else's pictures. SImply attributing the artist is often not enough in other formats I work in.
Hubpages doesn't enforce the rules very strong though - as long as an image isn't watermarked or pixelated, there s usually no issue unless someone complains. Thousands of people use copyright pictures on this site, unfortunately.

I am working on an as yet unpublished (as of 12-30-2011) hub about Marquette, Michigan. I found some relevant photos online that allow commercial use, and I'll include the best of those in the hub. I also found some good, relevant photos that I can't use because the license says no commercial use,...

Could one of the HubPages team confirm the official position re watermarked pictures? I know the rules say "prominent" watermarks are not allowed, but I can also understand the desire of Hubber photographers to protect their photos.What's the definition of "prominent"? Is...
