Came accross http://www.everystockphoto.com, another "free" stock image website.

This one has a twist. It's partnering with Fotolia and shows their paid images in a column to the right. Might be an interesting approach. There are an increasing number of infringement incidents with Creative Commons and commerical usage. The Virgin/Flickr incident for example. I wonder what affect this will have on leading skittish buyers toward buying a properly licensed commerical image.

Dan Heller has several great thought provoking entries on his blog about Creative Commons. http://danheller.blogspot.com/

The discussion about CC is interesting, but I guess it can happen in any place you put a photo - even on websites that legally purchased them for their use - and someone copies and resubmit them elsewhere?

I've received a PPT with images from CC database, all amazing.  It's just a waste that people simply give them away, but it's nevertheless their choice.

Regards,
Adelaide

I did a few searches on everystockp and see no reason for concern as to competition with any other paying site. It's really painful to wade through the junk that's there. Anybody looking for a usable image there must be really hard up and have way too much time on their hands.
