Library of Congress on Flickr

According to the Library of Congress Blog, more than 3,000 photos are being put on flickr without copyright restrictions. That means bloggers and artists can use these images for graphic design, print, or wherever their imagination forces them by the ears to go. That means we can be lazy AND have uality work at the same time WITHOUT stealing. I know I know, all of the fun is taken out of it that way (just joking), but I think this will turn out very interesting!q

Quote from: http://www.loc.gov/blog/?p=233
"Out of some 14 million prints, photographs and other visual materials at the Library of Congress, more than 3,000 photos from two of our most popular collections are being made available on our new Flickr page, to include only images for which no copyright restrictions are known to exist."

They do this in accordance with their mission: "The Library's mission is to make its resources available and useful to the Congress and the American people and to sustain and preserve a universal collection of knowledge and creativity for future generations."

Flickr is made for image hosting, it is better to have images for their sites.
