    Subject: image use MUST READ
    Date: 10th March, 2010
    Dear Mike Baird, I am writing about some of the photos you have posted on flickr; there is a list of eleven URLs at the bottom of this note. I would like to use these images as illustrations in a book I am writing. The book is called a Field Guide to Urban Wildlife of North America. Stackpole Books will publish it in 2011. The book will be for sale, but I don't expect to make a profit from it; it is both an educational work and a labor of love. The book will contain a few hundred photos, and flickr members contributed many of them. The creative commons license you have posted indicates that the photos may be freely used if attributed. I have read your profile and will follow those instructions and attribute each photo. My name is Julie Feinstein (it was already taken on flickr). I work at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. You can contact me through flickr mail or at my work email address: jfstein [at} @amnh d o t org. Thank you for making the photos available! I am profoundly grateful for your generosity. I will send you a copy of the book when it is released.

      Hi Mike,

      I am writing on behalf of the Friends of Bertram Chain of Lakes. We are a very small group in Minnesota, trying to save 1200 acres of land from development.

      We've just started a website and we want to begin posting information about local wildlife, along with photos. Would you consider letting us use your photos and we would give you credit? I love your shots. Really nice.

      Our website is www.friendsofbertramlake.org/.

      Either way, thanks for your consideration.

      All the best,

      Thanks fore asking. Best success on your projects with Dr. Herreid.

      Please be sure the photo you want to use is not restricted [the one you want is ok to use] because a few of my best images are marketed by Getty Images and I can't give you the rights to use those. Each image at Flickr has to the right of it under "additional information" information about its license status. You can use mine if it says "Some rights reserved" and links to the
      CC Attribution 2.0 Generic page.
      The CC license says, amongst other things, that "You must attribute the work in the manner specified by [me] the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they [I] endorse you or your use of the work)."
      If you are using one of my photos under a Creative Common license (most are licensed for use with attribution), please attribute the photo in one of the ways as follows (listed in order of preference):
      "Mike" Michael L. Baird, flickr.bairdphotos.com {link to the respective image landing page on Flickr} or
      Mike Baird, flickr.bairdphotos.com or if you have very limited space
      flickr.bairdphotos.com
      and if purposed online, please link your text and image to my related Flickr image comment and overview page - I want viewers to know exactly where the source image you are using is located, not just the domain within which it is housed. This is the biggest failing of people who use my images.
      Except for clearly identified derivative works, removal of my copyright notice or watermark by manipulation or cropping is not permitted. Exception requests for cropping for legitimate formatting purposes are almost always approved.
      * If your legitimate publication needs require a particular attribution style or format that is not accomplished by the above guidelines, simply make an exception request to me and it is almost always approved. I can also sign digitally release forms that may be required by your organization.
      I would appreciate a note via Flickr mail or directly to mike [at} mikebaird d o t com indicating which image was used (please include the URL to the framed image comment page - not just "your otter" or a link to a static farm .jpg). If appropriate I will add to the image description a link to your project.
      Also, Please add that same comment to my photo with links to its use by you, and add tags (labels) to further enhance its visibility. If you use my image(s) in a printed publication or video production, I'd love to get via postal mail a copy of the publication or tear sheets for my portfolio if practicable. Mail to Michael L. Baird, 2756 Indigo Circle, Morro Bay, CA 93442. USA. If you use my image(s) in a kiosk or panel design, etc., I'd love to get .pdf or other e-copies of the design to link and refer to.
