Creative Commons + Flickr = 22 Million Sharable Photos by Mark Glaser points out it is possible to search Flickr limited to images under a Creative Commons license.
Instead of the typical “all rights reserved” default copyright for photos, music, video, writing or other artistic works, Creative Commons lets you share your work under licenses that ask for an attribution or web link rather than payment, and restrict whether people can remix or change your work. (This helpful cartoon explains the various CC licenses.) You can actually search for photos on Flickr that have specific Creative Commons licenses, and through that search I found a great photo of Cuban shot by Kris Krug […]I used the photo with my story, and added a credit to Krug, linking to his site.”
