Flickr disables Pinterest pins on all copyrighted images (exclusive) | Font Lust & Graphic Desires | Scoop.it
As the third most popular source of content on digital pin-board site Pinterest, Flickr and its photographers are subject to frequent acts of copyright infringement.

Peg Becksvoort's curator insight, February 2, 2013 6:19 PM

One of the issues that Flickr photographers do worry about is © infringement. Will this help them feel that their content is safer? If they could disable users from including © images in blogs without authorization, that would be very nice, too.

Vince Vaughn and Co-stars Pose for Idiotic Stock Photos You Can Have for Free | Font Lust & Graphic Desires | Scoop.it
Stock photos have a bad rap. They're campy and cheesy and the butt of plenty of jokes. But what's great about them is they're often the catalyst for promotions or gags—sort of a comedic blank slate. Enter the new Vince Vaughn movie Unfinished Business, which comes out Friday.

Jessica Contrera writes: "

The Internet is the place where nothing goes to die.

Those embarrassing photos of your high school dance you marked “private” on Facebook? The drunk Instagram posts? The NSFW snapchats? If you use social media, you’ve probably heard a warning akin to “don’t post anything you wouldn’t want your employer (or future employer) to see.”

We agree, and are adding this caveat: Don’t post anything you wouldn’t want hanging in an art gallery."

Share alike: if the creator allows other to transform their work, they may also state, if someone wants to transform the work, the created image must carry the same Creative Commons license as the one that was transformed. I call this the “pay it forward” option.
