As you’ll have seen from the Creative Commons license type descriptions, there are a number of licenses only available for non-commercial use. So how do you know whether your project is commercial or non-commercial? Creative Commons’ own definition of commercial use is as follows: “…in any manner that is primarily intended for or directed toward commercial advantage or private monetary compensation.” Their guidelines on what constitutes non-commercial state that the following users are non-commercial: “(a) an Individual (b) a Nonprofit educational institution/library, (c) a Nonprofit organization as defined under US or equivalent law [1], (d) A commercial copy shop, ISP, search engine, content aggregator, blog aggregator site or similar service provider who, in the course of providing a service at the direction of the allowable NC user, may exercise a right licensed under the Creative Commons license.” BUT …it’s not always as simple as that.

A Collection of Free Media Resources This post attempts to list my top favorite free sites for royalty-free images, music, and videos for creative projects. Since 2000 I have been teaching university students how to design for print, the web, and the screen. One of the very first things we go over is that it’s always best to use your OWN original photos, drawings, music, and videos that you created yourself. Of course, when you need something really specific (say a close up photo of a lion’s mouth or the rings of Saturn) you can’t always get what you need on your own without also putting yourself in grave danger. No need to get mauled by a lion trying to take that close-up That’s where royalty-free and public domain goodies come in! The list below is not at all an exhaustive one, but it will get you started right away with some of my very favorite sites tried and tested by myself and my students over the years with much success.

15 Best Sites for Open Source Images Recently, a teacher we know put together a concise and effective PowerPoint presentation which was well received. The only thing was that when the students inquired where the photos came from, the teacher said he searched for them using Google. The students replied, “You mean you stole them!” (Some of the images still prominently displayed the watermark from iStock photo!) Trust me, you don’t want to be in this position, especially if you are trying to teach the 21st Century Fluencies of Global Digital Citizenship. The lines have become foggy as the Internet blurs the lines of fair use copyright issues. Resources for Copyright: Google So let’s address the giant in the room: Google. When you pull up Google’s main page, you’ll see at the top left something that resembles this: Click “Images.” Go to the bottom right which shows Privacy, Terms, and Settings. Next, ask Google to filter your search for images that you can safely use. It’s that simple! Creative Commons Pixabay MorgueFile Unsplash
