“Creative commons photos and audio: Don't limit yourself to your own photos and sound clips. Now you can directly import photos from Flickr™ and audio from Freesound. Creative Commons licenses allow you to use other people's work for free as long as you follow the wishes of the artist, such as provide attribution or use it for non-commercial projects. Each artist has their own terms of use.”
