Hi! How are you all? Good? Hope so.
Today, I want to discuss in brief, concise detail what COPYRIGHT means whether that be in the digital or physical world.
To simplify; when you are using a stock/referece for your artwork; depending on its attribution or "license" you MUST credit the source unless the stocks are yours than it's fine.
CC BY 3.0 which means Common Creatives Attribution 3.0 Unported basically that means, there is/are underlying requirements from the source i.e uploader/sharer which you ARE REQUIRED to do, given the opportunity (I won't go detail in to that and if you must know, these are in relation to professional advertisements, etc. . . . )
Additional example CC 3.0 vs CC0:
By Hehayo | vs Sirius-sdz |
One (Hehayo) clearly states his "legal" requirements versus Sirius-sdz 's "Have fun, no rules for creative usage."
