I also post pics to CalPhotos, and I'm a fair weather blogger.
FAQ: Hey, Steve, may I use your image for my website/brochure/catalog/teevee show/album cover/etc?
A: Thanks for asking! You may, if you can do so without being a jerk.
If you take credit for my work or ideas, or through negligence allow such credit to be assigned to you, you are a jerk. Don't be a jerk. If you use my voice to say something that I find distasteful*, you are a jerk. Don't be a jerk. If you use my work or ideas to generate income/profit/entice investors/etc** and you do not cut me in, you are a jerk. Don't be a jerk. If you're in a position to hire a real photographer, or to license images from one, but you'd rather stretch your profit by exploiting CC content, you are a jerk. Don't be a jerk.
I understand that many of your requested uses fall in a grey area between commercial and non-commercial uses. I'm afraid that I have neither time not interest in pinpointing them on that continuum and diagnosing whether a fee is due according to some arbitrary threshold. Please consult your conscience. I will defer to your decision, to the extent that you are a human being with a soul and a spine. To the extent that you a helpless speck of market flotsam hoping to felate your corporate masters through brownian motion, you may have sex with yourself.
*I mean really distastefull, on the civil rights/human liberties/electoral politics level. I don't have to like your band or think your blog is interesting.
**(If you're putting out your own joint by yourself and you're going to sell it just to offset expenses so you can live to fight another day, etc etc, then withholding my cut does not make you a jerk)
