      there's racism in Canada? there's racism everywhere, even Canada, but i didn't think it would be large enough to warrant a protest. what about Vancouver, Toronto, and other parts?

      Cool. Ever been notified that this picture is being used here? If you want to learn more join the discussion in our group Creative Commons Crucified.

      Nope, I haven't been notified, but I'm not surprised. I don't like or approve of that web site, but that's what happens with Creative Commons. Nothing legally can be done by me. The only party who could theoretically sue, is the subject of the photo, for a violation of her personality/publicity rights, which have never been waived. My usage would be legal since it's akin to a newspapers coverage of a newsworthy public social action. But, when used as a stock image, for decorative and non-editorial purposes, might be illegal. But, only the party aggreved has grounds for legal action.

      In another case, a neo-Nazi web site used a different CC image of mine, without credit. I didn't do anything, because I knew the only legal right I had was to ask for myself to be credited (obviously didn't want my name to appear there).

      I don't use CC licenses much anymore for new images, partly (not only) for this kind of reason.

      While the FlickR group you made has a good intent, I disagree with linking to the web site, as it may help generate traffic to it

      STOP racism indeed! It's a cancer, a devastating plague upon our social environment and interactions with each other as human beings.
      Racism is particularly insidious on the internet, where face-to-face interaction is removed and anonymity takes its place. Regarding racism, racially-based harassment and cyber stalking is very pervasive online, such as social network forums where mentally unstable individuals feel they have freedom to "go after" others who's race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or sexual orientation is different from theirs.
