But I need to repeat that this is not about us "not letting Tristan sell his prints" - he asked to do something new & unorthodox for us, that to my knowledge was not at all something a "lot" of people are engaging in -- we have only been asked a few times and have rarely ever granted permission, and...

Seriously, Flickr photos - i cannot find any Flickr photos where I can go in and buy copies of another person's work. I can buy Snapfish prints of my own work, but not yours -- unless you purposefully, proactively set it so others can buy a print of your image, which amounts to commercial distributi...

Tristan, you seem to work hard to impute bad motives on our part and to sling arrows at me because you choose to bring expensive photographic equipment to a private event and take photos of it.

Pretty models? Is this about pretty models?

Also, prints should not be allowed to be sold on Flickr, so indeed if you see someone doing so, please let us know at [email protected].com. If you're seeing them there for sale, it's not because we've approved it, it's because of the difficulty of enforcing it, but no, we don't permit individuals to...

The difference between fine art and prints-on-demand would not really be the price point and who can afford it/only wanting the rich to be able to afford prints -- that would be silly. The difference is mass distribution and profit.

I'm not sure 'mentioning' burning man in giving the description and history of the cupcakes would actually be using BM in an unpermitted way, any more than some reporter going to BM and writing an article about it would be.

The '08 info is not even compiled yet, much less '09. Turns out that when you use volunteers dispersed all over the US to do the data entry, a project can take a while.

Mo: if you simply ask an underaged officer her age, she is required by law to admit she is underaged. There's nothing offensive about asking someone who looks under 30 to provide ID, and I think it would be hard to argue that that's an onerous ask. And nobody under the age of 18 is permitted to atte...
