A brief word about Copyright of Free Photo Resources

In this new digital age, a few copyright systems have come into play to deal with the ever-increasing digital landscape. Below is the standard definition of Copyright, CopyLeft and Creative Commons taken straight from Wikipedia. The sites I have shared below are all giving away CopyLeft style copyright ie free to use for everything. However, it is always advised to check the license and about section. Some websites change their terms and conditions from time to time. Copyright variants, some allow their images to be used royalty free for commercial use, others allow personal use but not commercial use, others still allow commercial use but request the photographer be acknowledged.

Copyright is a legal right, existing in many countries, that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights to determine whether, and under what conditions, this original work may be used by others. This is usually only for a limited time.

Copyright – Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright

The main ideas to come forward are Copyleft and Creative Commons.

Copyleft, distinguished from copyright, is the practice of offering people the right to freely distribute copies and modified versions of a work with the stipulation that the same rights be preserved in derivative works created later.

And the Creative Commons

 

Creative Commons has been described as being at the forefront of the copyleft movement, which seeks to support the building of a richer public domain by providing an alternative to the automatic “all rights reserved” copyright, and has been dubbed “some rights reserved”. David Berry and Giles Moss have credited Creative Commons with generating interest in the issue of intellectual property and contributing to the re-thinking of the role of the “commons” in the “information age”.
