Flickr Would Like to Remind You That They Don't Steal Your Pictures
December 18, 2012
Photo-sharing service Flickr (remember them?) re-posted a note today saying, "At Flickr, your photos are always yours":
We feel very strongly that sharing online shouldn’t mean giving up rights to your photos. Our Terms of Service clearly spell out that Flickr/Yahoo! doesn’t own the photos that you upload. You, as a member, maintain all ownership rights to the photos that you upload to Flickr. Our Terms of Service allow us to “use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publicly perform and publicly display such Content on the Yahoo! Services solely for the purpose for which such Content was submitted or made available.”
Just an old, friendly thought from Flickr that they felt like re-sharing today. No reason at all. Could be any reason, really ...
