More about Creative Commons

If you are looking for free resources, here are a few places to find work (images, video, audio, and other media) released under a Creative Commons license:

Creative Commons.org

http://search.creativecommons.org/

Not a search engine in itself, but by searching from this page you can       access search services of other organizations – Google, Yahoo, Flick, blip.tv, jamendo, SpinXpress, and Wikimedia Commons. You can specify whether you want to use the work commercially and/or if you want to modify the work, but you cannot search by  specific license.

Wikimedia Commons

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

The Commons hosts images, sound, and video that are either licensed with a CC or GFDL license. Many files are even in the public domain. You can search by topic but not license.

Flickr

http://www.flickr.com/

Images only but if you have an account, you can search by specific CC license, which I find very useful.

Content Directory

http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Content_Curators

This is a place to find a list of more groups and organizations that provide CC-related services.  Audio, image, video, and text.
