If you want to use images of paintings from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, like Woman with a Parrot by Gustave Courbet, you no longer have to worry about rights. All of the Met's approximately 375,000 public-domain artwork images are now available for free, unrestricted use. The new "Open Access" policy, based on Creative Commons Zero (CC0), means bloggers, schools and businesses alike can use them without even the need for attribution.

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
