In response to Creative Commons

Last week, we put together the new Unsplash License to help us combat copycat websites and the problems that our community of contributors has faced because of these websites. Here's our response to Creative Commons' most recent post regarding the Unsplash License.

The Unsplash Manifesto

Our aim is to celebrate the gifts Unsplash contributors make by pushing the impact of their photography as far as we can. Our world is becoming increasingly visual. Images connect on an emotional level. They are not only how we self-express but also how we understand all kinds of information. The creative spirit is one of exploration. If creativity is a form of exploration, then an image is the perfect start.

Hello, Unsplash Inc.

For the last 3 years we’ve been running Crew with Unsplash by its side. But since January 2017, Unsplash and Crew will operate as two independent companies. The main change moving forward is focus. Everyone on Unsplash will dedicate full attention on serving the Unsplash community. And everyone on Crew will give full attention toward serving the Crew community.

In the past, this is where image libraries became of use, as did the right click button?
