Public Domain Sources

Sources of Public Domain Media , Images, Music, and other media that are in the public domain.


The information provided on this website does not and is not intended to constitute legal advice but rather all information and content available on this site are for general informational purposes only.

This website contains links to other third-party websites. Such links are only for the convenience of the reader, user or browser and I do not recommend or endorse the contents of the third-party sites.

Neither I nor this website makes any claim as to whether any of the images found on any of these links are truly in the Public domain, and as such the responsibility falls on you to ascertain that they indeed are in the Public Domain !

If the photos are copyright free, some restrictions still apply. Specifically, people have a legal right to privacy, and the use of their likeness for commercial advertising typically requires a consent agreement. If a person is recognizable in an image, a model release must be obtained before using the image for commercial purposes.

In principle, if an photo is sufficiently modified so that individuals are no longer “recognizable”, it should be okay to use. In any and all cases, the final responsibility for the fair use of the images found on links from this site is yours. The advice you are reading here is not a qualified legal opinion. You should seek legal advice if you have any questions or doubts about your use of images containing recognizable individuals.

Additionally as is stated on the web sites of NASA, the NOAA, and the FWS, the use of these agencies’ official emblems to implicitly or explicitly endorse any product, organization, policy, or agenda is strictly prohibited by law.
I am Not an attorney and this is not intended for legal advice, merely for informational purposes and I strongly advise the reader to seek a qualified attorney to answer any questions as to the legality of using any images or other media found online.
