Creative Commons - Images / Sound

According to Wikipedia:
Creative Commons has been described as being at the forefront of the copyleft movement, which seeks to support the building of a richer public domain by providing an alternative to the automatic "all rights reserved" copyright, dubbed "some rights reserved." ... Creative Commons has provided "institutional, practical and legal support for individuals and groups wishing to experiment and communicate with culture more freely."
In a nutshell,  when someone gives you "creative common" rights to an image or audio file, you can use it on your websites, presentations or what have you without worry of copyright violations.  You can visit the Creative Commons website to learn more.

Licenses

The Creative Commons website does a fine job explaining what each license means.  Please follow the link here: About The Licenses.
