New York City’s venerable Metropolitan Museum of Art recently gave back big time to art lovers everywhere when it changed its policy to allow the free, unrestricted use of artworks in its collection that are in the public domain (i.e., not protected by intellectual property laws). Under the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) designation, the Met’s new “open access” policy facilitates scholarly and commercial use of more than 375,000 images. We were so excited by this great news that we went sniffing around to see what we could find to share with you. Here is but a brief sample from our online visit. metmuseum.org/openaccess
