Creative Commons (CC)

This is a license used by photographers that allows them to offer their photos for free but the user still has to comply with certain licensing items in order to use the photo. If a creative commons licensed photo is used the photographer has to be credited for the photo with the copyright symbol, photos can not be used for commercial purposes (advertising, digital ads), and the user should be aware that this option is available so a photographer can get noticed for their work.
