On copyright and creative commons…

Since we have moved to the new site, we have been getting better at using uncopyrighted photos. Though, according to Doc Searls, we should probably do more, particularly with regard to Create Commons licences, which often only require attribution. I know for a fact that one of Red Mum’s photos ended up in the News of the World, several times, with no attribution. Bare with us whilst we try to dig down and find an easier way of cracking it routinely.
