Creative Commons

Creative Commons is a nonprofit that offers free legal tools to creative people who would like to share their work under specified conditions. On the site, readers may like to start by searching the commons, which they can do using the convenient search feature. A search turns up results from the OpenClipArt library, Google, Wikimedia Commons, SoundCloud, and other sources - all of it pre-approved for legal use. The site also features a number of compelling features for users who would like to license their own content. For example, under Licenses, users will find categories such as About the Licenses, Choose a License, and Things to know before licensing to understand available licensing options for particular products. On the other hand, readers who would like to use the work of others may also read about Best practices for attribution and Getting permission. Finally, the Creative Commons blog is a regularly updated source of information about licensing, public domain work, and the various artists and others that use Creative Commons to license their work.
