Hmm. Something’s fishy here. Compare this photo I posted (from the party at PURE during MIX07):
With this photo, posted by Flickr user “mecbmecb”:
They even used the exact same (slightly inaccurate) tags as I did.
I posted the photo, as I do all of my photos, under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial license, meaning anyone can use my photos for any non-commercial purpose as long as they give attribution/credit to me. They don’t even have to ask permission.
But this “mecbmecb” character didn’t even bother with that. They even posted the photo under the default “All Rights Reserved”, which is more restrictive that my Creative Commons license. Looking at the rest of the photo stream, it appears to be only photos from MIX07. Makes me wonder who took the other photos there.
Moral of the story: don’t be a jerk and post other people’s work as your own.
