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


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


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.



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

Content Directory


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