Is it okay for me to use a picture of a celebrity and mention their name in my hub?


I have a picture of the statue of Marilyn Monroe that I took and I wanted to use it in my hub but I'm not sure if it's legal to.

    Wow, awesome advice! And, is that the actual artist I should attribute my statue photo to? Thanks for all the info. Greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for expanding on that. I don't know why it didn't occur to me that celebs were fair game. Now that you put it that way, I think about the papparazzi and think to myself, "DUH?"

    Thanks so much, in this case it was my own photo. I still haven't messed around with the photo sites. I appreciate your advice and will make sure they're free when I use them.

    Thanks! I'm overloaded with trying to learn everything and trying to find everything I need to learn while also trying to write a hub so I took the easy way out and asked. Thanks so much for your help.
