Using Images and Music in your Book Trailers

If an image or clip is licensed under Creative Commons, it means you can use it in your trailer as long as you follow some simple steps. See the Copyright and Creative Commons page for more information, as well as a list of sites you can retrieve copyright-free images and clips from.
