Copyright-Friendly Images (Mostly!) for Use in Multimedia Projects and Web Pages


In the spirit of the open source movement, new copyright-friendly (and some copyleft) archives are emerging, removing many of the legal and ethical thorns relating to image use in student production. In addition, a number of government image archives provide their archives with limited restrictions.

 

Check out this cool video for an explanation of new, alternate forms of licensing:

Creative Commons Video http://mirrors.creativecommons.org/getcreative/clicktoplay.html

 

Most of the images in the collections below include images with a variety of less restrictive licensing. Though students may not need to ask permission to use them when publishing on the Web for educational purposes, they should cite these images unless otherwise notified! Important: Any copyright notices on these pages, should be read carefully and heeded!
