If you’re here, you probably want to know if you can copy and share the pictures on our website. The answer is yes, but with certain restrictions. If you see a KNOWOL watermark or logo on an image then you are free to download and share that image under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 United States license (CC BY-NC 3.0 US).

That means you can download and share KNOWOL branded images all you want, but please don’t remove our watermark or sell the images. Our team spends hours each day restoring old images and creating new ones for our audience and we want them to be shared and enjoyed free of charge. If you enjoy our images enough to share them on another website please include a backlink to the KNOWOL article where you found the image, because that gives us brownie points in the eyes of internet search giants who help people find KNOWOL content.

If you do not see the KNOWOL logo or watermark on an image then that image may be protected by copyright and you are legally responsible for doing the due diligence needed to decide whether that image can legally be shared.
