Am I allowed to sell these photos?


All the licenses, apart from some Creative Commons licenses, usually allow you to sell these free photos (see below):


a) Public Domain:


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_domain


Works in the public domain are those whose intellectual property rights have expired, been forfeited, or are inapplicable. The term is not normally applied to situations when the creator of a work retains residual rights, in which case use of the work is referred to as "under license" or with permission.


b) GPL (General Public License) 


http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#DoesTheGPLAllowMoney

Does the GPL allow me to sell copies of the program for money?

Yes, the GPL allows everyone to do this. The right to sell copies is part of the definition of free software. Except in one special situation, there is no limit on what price you can charge. (The one exception is the required written offer to provide source code that must accompany binary-only release.)

http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#DoesTheGPLAllowDownloadFee

Does the GPL allow me to charge a fee for downloading the program from my site?

Yes. You can charge any fee you wish for distributing a copy of the program. If you distribute binaries by download, you must provide “equivalent access” to download the source—therefore, the fee to download source may not be greater than the fee to download the binary.

http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#DoesTheGPLRequireAvailabilityToPublic

If I distribute GPL'd software for a fee, am I required to also make it available to the public without a charge?

No. However, if someone pays your fee and gets a copy, the GPL gives them the freedom to release it to the public, with or without a fee. For example, someone could pay your fee, and then put her copy on a web site for the general public.

c) Free Art License:

http://artlibre.org/licence/lal/en

You have the right to distribute copies of this work; whether modified or not, whatever the medium and the place, with or without any charge...


d) Free-Photos.Biz licence

I am the owner of this photo and I agree that this photo can be used by anyone, anytime, for any purpose, in any way, with no conditions.
