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.
