One of my photos

Clash of principles

February 23rd, 2010 · Posted by Skuds in Uncategorized · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

I had an interesting message on Flickr to day.  It was somebody asking if they can use one of my photos for something they are doing.  As all my photos are published under a Creative Commons licence there really is no need to ask, but I do appreciate the courtesy when people do.  This particular request presented a bit of a dilemma though.The request was to use a photo I took of Gordon Brown on a Christian educational website, in an assembly about bullying…

As an atheist and Labour member I may well not personally like what they do with it, but as a supporter of the Creative Commons principle I don’t think I should stop them.

    You could ask them to include a rider which says that it hasn’t actually been proved that GB is a bully. Creative commons is one thing but slander is quite another….
