Yahoo ‘censored’ Flickr comments
BBC News, May 18, 2007

“Late last year photographer Rebekka Gudleifsdóttir discovered that eight of her pictures were reportedly being sold by a UK-based online gallery. She raised the issue on Flickr but a photo and comments were deleted. Yahoo, which had no involvement in the row over the sale of the photos, has now apologised for its “mistake”.”

See what Zooomr CEO Thomas Hawk has to say about the issue here. And check out some interesting debate at Reddit.com here.
