I’m a huge fan of accessing public domain and creative commons licensed work for personal and educational usages.

Why do I think the public domain is important? The public domain feeds creativity across various art forms, assists in preserving films and historical documents for future generations, makes education more affordable and interactive, and helps open government operations to public scrutiny.

Also, using these works to inspire our own lets us all stand on the shoulders of the giants who came before, adding more light and warmth to our world.

Since 2013, the Getty Museum has released art images into the public domain–technically, using a Creative Commons (CC0) license. Now, they have over 88,000 images you can use for whatever purpose you like without permission.
