Royalty-Free Media for Projects

Copyright and Fair Use rules are incredibily complex. In general it is not OK to use music, video, sounds, images, photographs or other media from the Internet without permission.  The best advice is to gather your media for projects from sites that provide media that is specifically authorized for your use.
