Wired’s Photos are now Your Photos
Wired.com announced yesterday that it’s releasing all staff photography under a Creative Commons license. The photos are available via Wired’s Flickr stream.
The Creative Commons turns 10 years old next year, and the simple idea of releasing content with “some rights reserved” has revolutionized online sharing and fueled a thriving remix culture. Like many other sites across the web, we’ve benefited from CC-licensed photos at Wired.com for years — thank you, sharers! It seems only fitting, and long overdue, to start sharing ourselves.
This is a great — and bold — move. Before grabbing anything and everything you find there, click through to read some important caveats about images Wired licenses from third parties in order to see what’s fair game and what’s not, and how to know whether it’s fair game or not.
