The Creative Commons
The Creative Commons provides an alternative licensing system so that authors, musicians and other creators can grant rights to the public to use their work without payment but still retain control over their copyright material.
All the guidelines around the use of copyright material and creative commons can be found in the smartcopying website under information sheets - schools.

You can search for images, videos, and audio clips through CC Search. Your search can be refined by usage rights and by media host. CC Search gives you the option to search eight different media hosts for Creative Commons licensed materials.
Please note that search.creativecommons.org is not a search engine, but rather offers convenient access to search services provided by other independent organizations such as Flickr, Blip.tv, Google Images, Jamendo, Open Clip Art Library, Fotopedia, SpinXpress, and Wikimedia Commons
