Online Photos != Public Domain

I just read Thomas Hawk’s post about a popular Icelandic Flickr photographer (and art student and single mom by day), Rebekka Guðleifsdóttira, who had her work ripped off and sold as prints by London-based company Only-Dreemin. The company got at least £2450 in their cash register, while Rebekka got no cash, no credit, nothing.

More information can be found on Rebekka’s Flickr post. I feel terrible for the photographer. This really really sucks.

Spread the word. Digg it here.
