Can you use content that is licensed as Creative Commons?
Yes, anyone may use CC licenses for material they own, including governments and IGOs, and these institutions frequently use CC licenses on their copyrightable material. Creative Commons licenses are also machine-readable, allowing CC-licensed works to be easily discovered via search engines such as Google.
Can you use Creative Commons without violating copyright?
While all Creative Commons items may be used without paying fees, nearly all of them require attribution. Not giving credit – or not formatting an attribution properly – violates the license terms, and constitutes copyright infringement. Only images with the CC0 license may be used without attribution.

Is Creative Commons the same as public domain?
Public domain is the purest form of open/free, since no one owns or controls the material in any way. Creative Commons licenses do not affect the status of a work that is in the public domain under applicable law, because our licenses only apply to works that are protected by copyright.
Can I use an image with a commercial license?
Creative Commons licenses: These images are usually free to use, but require credit. They may also have limitations on how, or in what context, you can use them. Commercial or other licenses: These images have non-Creative Commons licenses and can be from either free sites or commercial sites that require payment.
Do I need to attribute public domain?
