Unsplash, provider of free high-resolution photos, has updated its license for the use of its photos over web.

Earlier, the site used to allow publishers to copy, modify, distribute and use the photos for free, including commercial purposes.

The site’s new license has restricted the modification and replication of the photos.

Unsplash’s new license:

“All photos published on Unsplash can be used for free. You can use them for commercial and noncommercial purposes. You do not need to ask permission from or provide credit to the photographer or Unsplash, although it is appreciated when possible.

More precisely, Unsplash grants you a nonexclusive copyright license to download, copy, modify, distribute, perform, and use photos from Unsplash for free, including for commercial purposes, without permission from or attributing the photographer or Unsplash. This license does not include the right to compile photos from Unsplash to replicate a similar or competing service“.
