Default Free resource sources
Since we here at MTS want to help all creators find wonderful, free-to-use resources, we have a small list of sites which offer great stuff. Obviously there's a lot more stuff out there on the internet, but these sites can be a great starting place. Unless otherwise noted, these websites offer all free content which should be usable in any MTS upload with a proper credit.

Important notes
While we have done our best to ensure that the sites listed offer free content, we cannot guarantee that everything on each website is free to use. We strongly encourage you to check each site's terms of use for yourself. If items from these sites are found to have restrictive terms of use, they may not be allowed in MTS uploads.

The meadows are in bloom:
who has ever seen such insolence?
