A new app called The List, developed by non-profit Creative Commons, provides photographs under an open license.

The app is designed for people to post image requests and share images with each other, lessening the dependency on stock photos.

New app could kill the stock photo industry. Image 1.

From the Creative Commons website:

"Through The List, organizations will provide lists of locations, people, and events that they need photographs of. And when users are in the right place at the right time, they can claim an item from the list and publish a photograph of it. All photos on The List are openly licensed, meaning that everyone can use them."

Although still in the development stages, check out the beta version of the app for Android, here.
