What are the rules in relation to images in the news?
I am toying with the idea of writing a hub about something which is presently in the news here is Oz. What are the rules in connection with images in the news? Are they similar to all other images? Do I have to get permission from the newspaper, from the persons shown in the images?
One sees the same images across a number of stations or media. Does that mean it is okay to copy?
I think, you can't copy the images from news articles. They are copy righted by their owners. You can only link to them in your hub by linking to the URL of it.
Thank you for your response. That is a bit disappointing as it would be a massive task to get permission for several photos one would need. Maybe I will have to take a different tack about the subject. Thanks again.
But, you can copy the image url and paste it in the space provided for linking photos in your photo capsule.
H Venkatachari M If I put URL links, won't that put me over the number of links I am allowed?
Sorry, seen reply just now. This URL is not links. It is a Photo capsule. In your photo capsule, when you click edit, the choose photos button will appear to you. you can see three options- upload, import, my photos. click import button and paste it

If a photo capsule similar to amazon is made available, appearance of the hubs will be better than their present appearance. Just giving key words related to topic will provide several photographs. There is a provision...
