My Daily Stats from flickr.comWhere Can I Buy Flovent, As a flickr addict I am known to check my stats page daily, finding new links in to my images (such as from ABC's DIG Radio site) and discovering what he most interesting shots are according to people out there that are using flickr to find them (for the record the list is: macbooks (plus four more photos), a hairy chest, Kanye West, what's in your pocket, the surf at Bar Beach and the beached ship Pasha Bulker at Nobby's Beach). Today I came across something a little odd, Flovent paypal, Flovent usa, it was a link in from 3DWorld, a street magazine in Australia devoted more to the dance music scene, Flovent australia. 500mg Flovent, The links were to some of my Shapeshifter shots from last Friday's gig at The Metro in Sydney (blogpost to come - been a bit slow).

3DWorld's respect for Intellectual Property : nil
The Flickr API
The Flickr API has strict Terms of Service Where Can I Buy Flovent, by which users shall ensure that they operate, this is particularly true for commercial operations. Flovent india, In addition to the repetitive stipulation that the works hosted on flickr remain the property of those who submit, section 1(a)(ii) states clearly:
1, Flovent uk. Flovent ebay, Licensed Uses and Restrictions: a. You shall: Comply with any requirements or restrictions imposed on usage of the photos by their respective owners, Flovent coupon. 1000mg Flovent, Remember, Flickr doesn't own the images - Flickr users do, 20mg Flovent. Although the Flickr APIs can be used to provide you with access to Flickr user photos, neither Flickr's provision of the Flickr APIs to you nor your use of the Flickr APIs override the photo owners' requirements and restrictions, which may include "all rights reserved" notices (attached to each photo by default when uploaded to Flickr), Creative Commons licenses or other terms and conditions that may be agreed upon between you and the owners, Where Can I Buy Flovent.

Not the First Time
Unfortunately this is not the first time that companies have been caught out using flickr photos via the API (or via other means) illegally. Where Can I Buy Flovent, The most recent high profile case being Heineken using unauthorised photos via the API to promote the Oxygen concert in the United Kingdom. Fellow Australian music photographer Richard Sharman discovered this accidentally and led the charge that got quite wide coverage in photography circles (such as a A Photo Editory).
Since the API is easy to implement I am sure that more companies will do so. Unfortunately until they wake up to the fact that there are legal penalties and financial obligations that follow ripping photographers work off without due compensation this will continue. I've not been hyper critical of the flickr API, however, perhaps its time that photographers are allowed to limit API based access to their sites based on website URI.
Course of Action
If you've found some of your shots (it seems to be the "latest eight shots" as determined by flickr) then please comment below and I'll be in touch. I was in touch with a lawyer at close of business today, so we'll see what tomorrow brings.
The lesson out of all of this is to be vigilant. Much like the price of freedom being eternal vigilance, the price of ensuring your work is not appropriated by such commercial enterprises (let alone the non-commercial ones) without the required licensing being in place is to be ever vigilant of the shots your publish and the locations that they are published at.
