Announcing Free Use Photos – A New Flickr Group

How often do you need a quick photo to illustrate a point or concept? Are you ever concerned about the copyright restrictions? Well look no further!

Inspired by Michael Casey and his 50 Reasons Not to Change post (and the comments that followed). Tony Tallent and I have created a Flickr group called Free Use Photos where all the photos are free and can be used with no restrictions.

We encourage everyone in the library and education communities to join and share photos that can be used for displays, presentations, blogs, or any other imaginable use. Tony has already added some great photos to the group that will give you an idea of what we are looking for.

Stephanie, see my most recent post about rules for photographers. If it is a public space you can take photos and do whatever you want with them.

Great idea - I don't have much to share at this point - would it be legal to put up the pictures I took at Seattle Public Library with my own camera? Thanks for the invite.

Here's to free use, Lori! Let's all be reminded that the "0" in 2.0 is not, and should not be a hoop (as in "you must jump through this hoop in order to use).! Freedom! Tony
