Understanding Licenses


Licenses for images, videos and other content let you know if you can use them and if there are restrictions on how you can use them.

Copyright law applies to most content regardless of whether a copyright statement or symbol is displayed.

Important: if content is labeled "All Rights Reserved" or no license is displayed then you should seek the owners permission to use it.

Open Licenses: the good news is that there are a range of different open licenses which mean that you can reuse content. Some restrictions may still apply. Many of the images on this site have Creative Commons licenses.
