A lot of the pictures I´ve used in What you MUST know about the future are in the public domain, and so is all the real-footage I´ve used (which isn´t much). And a lot of pictures have a Creative Commons licence. You can find links to all the different pictures with CC-license I have used here:

Thank you very much to all of the people who have released your work into the public domain, or given it a CC-licence!

I believe that my use of book- and film-covers, as well as a screen-shot from IBMs Watson´s participation in Jeopardy, as qualifying very clearly as being fair use: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use.

The graphs with exponential y-axis were produced by Ray Kurzweil and his team. His book can be bought here: http://www.amazon.com/Singularity-Near-Humans-Transcend-Biology/dp/0670033847.

The animation of a nanofactory, as well as the digitally produced image portraying a nanofactory, were produced by Lizard Fire Studios (John Burch): http://lizardfire.com, and funded by a challenge-grant from nanorex.
