Hey everyone! I sometimes edit videos (kind of video collages) to share with people both personally & online and was wondering if people could share either directly or help direct me to places and people that openly share their media copyright free. I use them to spread permaculture and teach people all about our natural path and potential when symbiotically connecting directly to the natural system we truly live in/on. LOVE and THANKS!

Looks like you are looking for... Can't remember what it is called in the USA... Public domain? material.

In most countries, a thing is automatically protected by copyright unless/until the creator puts it in the public domain or open source.

Appropedia might be a good starting place https://permies.com/f/126/appropedia

Also look into vintage works.  Pre 1900

Most permaculture is based on things our ancestors did, but redressed in another name.  There are some excellent farming manuals from the 19 and 18th century.

If you're not creating the videos for commercial use (i.e. making money from it) you can easily obtain cheap media from media outlets or individuals, or also for free from individuals who would be happy to share for educational, non-commercial purposes

The Farmer's Handbook! https://permies.com/t/50195/Book-Review-Farmers-Handbook-Volumes

Seriously great free resource that gives practical permaculture tips, as well as the basics of permaculture, in a way even total novices can understand. Lots of good pictures and illustrations. I found this manual invaluable when I encountered it.

It's free, and was written to teach farmers in the Himalayans how to farm in a permaculture way, with few resources.

You may find something useful here:

Remember that it's best practice to give author credit even with public domain works.

THANKS for all the responses! I will check those links and resources out. Just f.y.i., it's never for money and only permaculture and earth would profit from this. If anyone else knows of specific people or media that might be good for this I would appreciate it.

If you would like to add still images to your videos, the 2 best ways I've found to search for license free images are as follows:

  1. Go to Google.com, type in your search term (eg. "permaculture") & press enter,
       Under the search bar, select "Images" to get an images-only google search result,
           Near "Images" you'll find a "Tools" menu; click on that,
               Now more previously hidden menu items will appear; choose the "Usage rights" twirl down menu,
                   Select "Labeled for reuse" & press enter... Voilà!

  2. The WikiMedia Commons are where all the license-free images that populate The Great Wikipedia are stored. It has a search bar function that is also very useful for finding license-free images (eg. WikiMedia Commons search results for fungi).

Now, you know how to fish.

My partner & I create permacultural multimedia pieces & release all of our podcast & YouTube content into the Creative Commons under the Attribution-ShareAlike license. Feel free to use any of our content under these CC BY-SA terms; in short, do with the content what you will so long as you give us explicit credit as the original producers & if you make changes to the content, the new content will stay under the same license.

PS- If this is useful for you, always remember that you too can also release the media you create into the commons for the benefit of all: Creative Commons.
