Great points! I, too, think that copyright policies these days aren't clear enough. Originally, all rights reserved was I guess the norm and everyone understood what it meant, but time changed since then. Now more and more people have the means to use artworks in creative ways, that they themselves didn't create in the first place, and generate sth new, sometimes even better out of them. Hovewer the boundaries aren't clear enough, and ppl don't really understand the legal side of it.I use CC licenced works and most of my music & art is licenced CC too, but honestly, I sometiems still wonder whether I correctly understand what I can & cannot do with CC licenced works and how I should licence mine. I love the concept of CC though, I just think it can be done better.

Keep in mind that "copyright" and "All rights reserved" only means that you don't get to use every image you come across immediately, but that you need to contact the author first. I have done this many times through flickr (getting in touch can take a while there, though, it seems many users don't check their flickr messages on a regular basis). Everytime they have granted me permission to use their "(c)" pictures for free on my band's website. THIS, to me, is one of the most dire misunderstandings in the copyright discussion. "All rights reserved" means that I want a say, that I want to be asked before you use my work. If I support what you want to do with it, I can give it to you for free, if you make money, gain fame or generate fun out of it, I want my fair share. @George: it does not mean "No you can't". It means "Maybe you can, but please ask first"

@JP , the whole point of CC is not having to ask. It should make things easier. That's also the reason for me to ONLY use CC-BY, no other CC licenses. I don't want any confusion.

Why not just ask the creator of the image if it's OK to use their image. I'd think that would be a common courtesy anyway even if you were using it for non commercial purposes. It would also clear up any confusion in the license, since the choice is right back in the hands of the rights owner. I've had numerous contacts on flickr for image use, some I say yes, some I say no (very few), but every time I thank the person for contacting me.

Over at Humanworkshop we work the same way. Only using CC licensed and public domain pictures with articles. We don't make any money with our articles. We don't place any adds. But we do get a higher google ranking because of our articles. And we DO make money with sound design and composition. (most of the music is licensed under CC non commercial too tho). So in-directly we do benefit from having a blog. I am a big fan and contributor to CC and just got an email from them about their financial situation. (maybe add to the article?) The times are changing and the so called "information age" needs an update. CC is a great tool which can help in the process imo.

... Yes Peter I know... but really I think that patent law and copyright are good ideas bad done... I'm asking (myself too) Why to solve this issue? In my country (spain) there is a private association who "cares" about their "guys" but the state has aproved a law making a tax over any "writable" media (hd, sd, cd, dvd... laptops and so on). This tax is for compense the "possible" bad use of these medias... Do you know about "presumption right"? This is the result of overproteccionism + allforfree from "society" of information. For me something is wrong in this moment... and I try to understand all the parts to find any kind of solution before this go so far... Obviously the solution will be a mixed one from all these parts. Let go to make our part. ...
