What Is a Creative Commons License?

The web is packed with photos, videos, essays, research, and more made freely and openly available for anyone. At Boundless, we create free learning tools for students by using content under Creative Commons licenses. These licenses are a standard way for content creators to give others permission to use their work.

Unfortunately, many people do not properly attribute open content to the material’s creator. While sorting through the nitty gritty of CC licenses might seem daunting, there are tons of ways to make sure you’re attributing content to the creator properly without sacrificing much of your time. Check out this great guide from foter.com that outlines how to find and source free photos online!
