These licenses give great freedom to use content of other people in a legal and fair way. When someone uses this kind of license we can be sure that they are willingly giving a permit to share their intellectual property.
Creative Commons has different versions with different rules of the license. We follow and respect these rules. Every wallpaper is properly credited and linked to the original source. We also display the exact license that the image is using. Doing things this way limits the selection for content but makes the search even more rewarding. For personal use you can basically use any image you can find online but for us it is important that the we are sharing these wallpapers legally.
