The recent controversy over Virgin Mobile using Flickr images without bothering to inform the photographers seems wrong. Why didn't Virgin inform the photographers as a courtesy? One of the reasons for using Creative Commons is to forgo income in exchange for recognition. But if there is no informed recognition then it sort of undermines the desire to use Creative Commons.
Here's the Virgin Mobile discussion:
