Hyperallergic: Photog Files $1 Billion Suit Against Getty for Licensing Her Public Domain Images.

In December, documentary photographer Carol Highsmith received a letter from Getty Images accusing her of copyright infringement for featuring one of her own photographs on her own website. It demanded payment of $120. This was how Highsmith came to learn that stock photo agencies Getty and Alamy had been sending similar threat letters and charging fees to users of her images, which she had donated to the Library of Congress for use by the general public at no charge.” This is why I never listed anything on Flickr as Creative Commons. You ever see my photos used, let me know. I give personal permission, not blanket permission.
