Just an update. I may have doubled some up but its near midnight here so Ill sort any doubles tomorrow!
/EDIT


Many years ago, the amazing LawrenceDeDark created the original Unrestricted Stock Directory. A place for artists to come and find a list of stock providers who offer their resources as unrestricted. This is an update on an old list (2009, eep!) <3

Unrestricted stock can be used for both personal and commercial projects, but it cannot be redistributed as stock. You are not required to obtain permission prior to using the stock off site or in DA prints. The only requirements are that the stock provider be notified and credited.

1. You have to give credit.
2. You have to let the provider know.
3. You can not redistribute as a resource

Thats it, Thats as easy as Unrestricted Stock gets.

To be added to the list please NOTE me with either
Unrestricted stock account or unrestricted stock folder as the title please. This makes it easier for me.

FAQ



Q. My stock has the above rules but also one that says it cannot be used for ____ (lets say nudity) can I still be listed?
A. Unfortunately, you have other rules attached to your stock, which makes them restricted in some sense and therefore they can not be listed.

Q. My stock is unrestricted for artists however I do not allow premade stock backgrounds, is this ok?
A. One of the 3 rules of unrestricted stock is no redistribution as a resource. This can be in part or in whole. You can choose to allow premade background makers access if you wish, but please be clear about it if you do not.

Q. I only have a handful of stock amongst many other pieces of non stock work in my gallery, can I still be listed?
A. Of course! So long as you place your unrestricted stock in a gallery folder labelled as Unrestricted so people can find it. There is no problem with this.
