Copyright-Free Images

You might be wondering...why do I need to care about copyright?

According to the Copyright Licensing Agency, "Copyright is a legal right of ownership that enables the creator of a written, artistic or published work, to control how it is used."  In school, you encounter and interact with copyrighted material every single day. You may be accustomed to simply copying an image from anywhere and pasting it into a school project without confirming that the owner of that image has granted permission for others to use it. In order to be a responsible student and global citizen, you need to be knowledgeable about copyright. The good news is, it's very easy to find copyright-friendly materials on the Web.
