Creative Commons Search

Whether for your website, your blog or student projects, it’s important to know that unless the creator has given permission for you to use their images, videos or other media, you Should Not Use it! It’s called Copyright! And although the rules vary internationally, it is simple common respect to only use someone else’s work if they have freely shared it. Even then, it’s always nice and sometimes required to acknowledge the creator. Find out how to search for shared work in this video.

Luckily there are many places to find images that have been licensed for the Creative Commons: in other words for anyone to use with various restrictions.

Any time photos are taken from the Internet, for personal, professional or student projects, care should be taken to  comply with the photographer’s copyright. Many prefer to protect their images from use, but some share freely. You can learn about different licenses here.
