This photo gallery presents a number of images that are available for public use. Before downloading, however, please read the following explanation of copyright and Creative Commons.

Copyright

By Australian law and international policy, copyright in a created work is initially held by the author/creator, automatically upon its creation. No registration is required (unlike patents). The copyright symbol © is often added as a reminder, but copyright does not depend upon attachment of the symbol. The author/creator may subsequently assign rights to others.

The term ‘public domain’, often heard in discussions about copyright, is ambiguous and does not negate copyright. Sometimes the term simply means that a work is available for the public to view – as distinct from confidential to the author or secret to their organisation. Sometimes the term means that anyone can use a work free of charge or permission – such as for the text of the King James Bible.

The Creative Commons regime has been established to allow created works to be publicly shared while still allowing the author/creator to be recognised as the creator of the work. There are various categories, reflecting the extent to which the copyright-holder agrees to allow re-use.
