WHICH MEDIA CAN I USE IN MY PROJECT?
Check our Copyright Policy under Agreements. It basically states that if you are not creating the media yourself and it is not public domain, then your first choice is to search for media licensed under Creative Commons.
If you really need to use copyrighted media, then you either ask for permission or check whether it is possible to claim Fair Use. Check the flowchart Not Sure What to Do below, for guidance in specific situations.
HOW TO SEARCH CREATIVE COMMONS
1. Search Creative Commons
2. Bookmark on the Bookmark’s Bar, then Search
To Search, type the “keyword”, unclick “for commercial purposes”, and select the service where you want to search for media licensed under Creative Commons
HOW TO WRITE YOUR CITATION
Even though an image or video is under creative commons, you still need to give credit, so you need to cite it.
