Free Stock Photos - Foter | Copyright and digital images | Scoop.it

This site harvests many Copyright free images from elsewhere on the web and provides an easy way to search and some categorisation.  The main value that foter adds though is by making it particularly easy to embed images in some blogs with the attribution automatically attached.  Well worth a look.

Mary Dawson's insight:

If you are after Creative Commons licensed images in particular colourways this is the search engine to use.  You can select up to five different colours and tweak the proportions of each.  There is no option to combine content and colour but nevertheless this is a fantastic tool!

Via Robin Good
Mary Dawson's insight:

I am very aware of the fact that I am using a digital curation site to highlight external resources about images and Copyright and therefore it seems sensible to highlight some of the pitfalls of this approach.  I note that the Scoop.it example does not come out of this too well!

Andreas Kuswara's curator insight, February 27, 2013 8:09 PM

with the increase in mash-up content, the issues of IP such as this would need our attention and commonsense.

Media&Learning's curator insight, February 28, 2013 12:40 AM

Features, best practices, copyright, use and examples of content curation. Basically everything it is useful to know about content curation. Plenty of useful information.

Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) : Home

Licensing organisations to copy and reuse print and digital publications. Licence fees are paid to authors, artists and publishers.
Mary Dawson's insight:

The CLA is the UK body that sorts out blanket licensing so that creators of original content are rewarded for their efforts and organisations are able to make some use of content without having to seek individual permissions on each occasion.
