So is microstocks biggest competitor flickr, full of loads of great, easy to find images, all keyworded, for free. If mr or ms business-person wants an image for the killer presentation why would they pay $1 when they can get one for free?

Does Flickr have an EUL (end-user license) that says that uploads are FREE to use for business purposes?  If so, then I could see it as a threat.

But if they don't, then someone can't LEGALLY use the image without the express permission of the author.  They would have to contact the author, which takes time and there is no guarantee that the author would allow use of the image in question.
