Would these be considered "commercial use"?


Question

From the Creative Commons website:

A commercial use is one primarily intended for commercial advantage or monetary compensation.

Would it be considered commercial use if an image was used in a blog post that provides valuable info to readers and isn't trying to sell something (e.g. a guide, how-to, etc.)? The blog would be part of a website that does offer services though, but there's nothing you can purchase on the website.

Accepted Answer

Commercial use means that the image is used directly in the marketing and promotion of a product that results in monetary gain. Otherwise, you are fine as long as you don't claim ownership of the image either explicitly or implied.
