Though the free downloads are limited to 20 per day, there's no obligation to stay with the service.  There's also no restrictions on how you use the footage.  A spokesperson from VideoBlocks.com told Indiewire, "You may use our media as long as you incorporate original content of your own. Anything you download you then own and can use however you wish, including media obtained during the free trial."

The site, which offers over 100,000 clips, offers monthly subscriptions for $79 and $474 for a six month subscription.
