    Doing the first posts for the Soup, and also working on my Facebook page, I found that quite often the best photos had some limits of copyright . The problem exist expecially when you look for a place that is  not so famous or not so photographed; for example it was very easy to find some beautiful photos about Sicily,  but when it comes to look for a photo of – let’s say – a little beach near Palermo ( Mondello ) I didn’t find so much . So I wonder what is the correct way to use photos with some limits to their use. In Flick-r I found excellent photos  ruled by “Creative Commons”; the rule to follow was to mention the author and to link the page. I like Pixabay but I would like also some alternatives!

    Did you deal with the same problem and found better solutions? Do you think I used creative commons in the right way? I’d really like to collect and share information about this issue.

    Here is the link to my post if you want to take a look:

    Thank you for your help !!

    P.S. I think a similar issue could be the use of small parts of a guide etc. English is not my mother tongue and so it’s sometimes necessary for me to grab little pieces written in a good English.
