About This Class
When you create a website, a video or a course on SkillShare or Udemy, you often use photos and other material like background music.
I often see that proper attribution is not always given in all final products.
You may ask "Why is this important?".
Well, I'm not a lawyer so that the law may be different in your country. But from what I know, you can get into trouble, if you use free material and don't give proper attribution.
So, I will show you, how I understand the topic, and what I do, to make sure, that all artists get their attribution, that they deserve.
I will address only free sources here, so all photos and all music will come from free sources.
By giving proper attribution, you don't just make sure you comply with the law. You will also help the artists, who give away their work for free, to benefit from your work.
So they will get an incentive to offer their works for free in the future.

Brief and focused info that opens doors to using images from the web... and how to do so legally! Valuable class with some good resources to consider.

Finally, someone explains that people cannot just "swipe" images and music to use at they like. Thanks for explaining this, Marian. :-)

I started computer programming back in 1988 when I created my first software with BASIC, Turbo Pascal and later in C++.
My primary domain in development was always database development, and I was a freelancer who created custom software for individual clients.
When the Internet came up with the World Wide Web and cheap web hosting for everybody, I switched over to Web-Development, which I started by learning PHP. I did some custom web software for my clients, using PHP as scripting language and MySQL as database software.
In 2010 I started using WordPress as blogging and content management platform and specialized in creating and modifying themes and plugins for this software.
Currently, I'm working as a freelancer, using job platforms like UpWork and codeable to find new projects with international clients.
I also write eBooks about WordPress and produce instructional videos that I offer on youTube, SkillShare and Udemy.
