Like how about model releases? The story is simple: Virgin Mobile’s advertising agency used photos marked for commercial reuse via CC licensing on Flickr in its current Australian campaign.
What they failed to do was get permission from the people in the photos, in this case me and several friends, at least one of whom is a Yahoo! employee.
Not sure what the next step will be legal-wise, if any, but I’m looking into it you can be sure.
This is not the kind of famous I had in mind. 😉
