      IMHO you really should reconsider the use of the least restrictive creative commons license. While I understand the spirit in which you have done this, I’m not sure you have considered the potential consequences.

      This license allows individuals to not only use your images COMMERCIALLY without compensation (if they are valuable enough for them to make money off of them, you should be getting a cut -plus you presumably don’t have model releases which is a whole other discussion on liability), they allow people to use them for ANY purpose – including some that you may find morally or ethically reprehensible. Additionally, they may edit them in any manner they see fit – again, including those you would not find acceptable.

      Remember, copyright includes your right to not have your work displayed in a place or manner which you do not want. Think of your reaction if you were to have someone forward you an advertisement prominently featuring one of your images supporting the one organization that you most despise – with your name front and center attached to the image (just like the image requires). Before you dismiss this as not being realistic – shoot me an email and I’ll tell you about someone I know whose image was used in a manner they never expected and would never have agreed to.

      Keep your rights and be selective in who you give permission to. Not because you are greedy and are trying to monetize this….but rather so that you know how, when, where and by whom your creations are being used.

    I had my pictures and my words stolen from my blog post. I think it’s time for me to get that Copyright Notice myself. Thank you for the hint.

      you are welcome, I had no idea until I received the feedback from my readers. There are a few options for copyright stuff out there I am using Creative Commons because it was the first one suggested & I am too lazy to investigate any others 😉
