Relatively recently, early this 2014, Google implemented a new feature on its advanced search page of images.

Now allows you to find pages containing those files under Creative Commons licenses.

A 10 years of the existence of CC are long. The known Copyleft (“antagonist” of Copyright), with some rights reserved.

With these licenses the author decides what applications users can do their work (royalties). Let’s review the types of licenses:

CC BY Attribution 
CC BY

This license lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation. This is the most accommodating of licenses offered. Recommended for maximum dissemination and use of licensed materials.

CC BY-SA Attribution-ShareAlike 
CC BY-SA

This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work even for commercial purposes, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. This license is often compared to “copyleft” free and open source software licenses. All new works based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also allow commercial use. This is the license used by Wikipedia, and is recommended for materials that would benefit from incorporating content from Wikipedia and similarly licensed projects.

CC BY-ND

This license allows for redistribution, commercial and non-commercial, as long as it is passed along unchanged and in whole, with credit to you.

CC BY-NC Attribution-NonCommercial 
CC BY-NC

This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, and although their new works must also acknowledge you and be non-commercial, they don’t have to license their derivative works on the same terms.

CC BY-NC-ND Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 
CC BY-NC-ND

This license is the most restrictive of our six main licenses, only allowing others to download your works and share them with others as long as they credit you, but they can’t change them in any way or use them commercially.

The discussion begins when not everyone understands (or does not want to understand) the operation of these licenses. They are used to: if it’s on the Internet, it’s free. Of course there are free content, but that does not absolve the user that must name the author and link to the original content. If you have the time to find the content you need, why not invest a few more minutes to attribute correctly?

This occurs mainly in the field of photography. Many blogs, digital magazines and newspapers improperly used images found online. They do not usually name the author, but there is another part that directly attributed authorship or place that is a “file photo.” Then there are those that name the author, but no link to your website, then half the attribution remains. And who put the finishing touches are what cut the photograph to prevent the watermark (if any) or to readapt to your liking. There are very few media licenses apply correctly.

There are an infinite world of possibilities with content CC BY license (or license you need), and only takes a few minutes to learn to use them. Now with the new advanced search tool from Google images should be no excuse for doing things wrong, but always check that the author in question is using the licenses, these things are not always perfect. Lots ready attributing things that are not yours, you must denounce action if we witness it notifying the original author, if possible, to exercise their rights.

Photographers who want to share their images under CC are left to qualify for the good faith of people who decide to learn to use them correctly.

So to close the article you leave a infographic Foter how they are used. It is in English, but it is very graphic.

So long, and keep on BonapaShooting!
