    INCORRECT! You can upload someone else's work if the author granted permission for anyone to use it under a free license. Be sure to provide a link to the license.
  2. You can't upload original images of buildings or people taken in public without written permission. (click to expand or collapse)
    INCORRECT! You can take pictures of buildings and people, so long as you are in a public space. Pictures of buildings, landscapes, and people can be shared on Commons.
  3. People have to follow rules closely when they use "free license" images, or they can be sued for financial damages. (click to expand or collapse)
    CORRECT! A free license means the creator is sharing the image with others, so long as they follow certain rules, such as attributing the original creator. If you don't follow those rules, you could end up in court.
  4. You can share any image you find online, as long as you cite the source. (click to expand or collapse)
    INCORRECT! You can't upload a variety of photographs, including images you take of someone else's artwork, because of copyright. Citing the source doesn't give you the right to copy their work, unless they specifically say so.
