    Can anyone confirm this is real? Nothing on Unsplash's site makes any mention of this including their license and terms sections.

      Hey Matt, happy to confirm that this article gets most of the points wrong. It's true that we no longer use a license called CC0 but we instead created a new license that allows for all the same uses as CC0, minus mass compiling and redistribution on a competing service. All photos can still be used for free, for commercial or personal purposes, without requiring attribution.

      We've written up a response to their claims here if it helps https://community.unsplash.com/articles/inresponsetocc
