Rights Cleared ? Maybe not

In interesting story for anyone using someone else’s images for publication:

A Texan family is now suing Virgin Mobile for using a photo of their daughter, Alison Chang, in an ad campaign – the catch is, it was released by the photographer on Flickr under the Creative Commons Attribution license, and that’s where Virgin Mobile got the photo from. The problem is, the girl featured in the photo had no idea her photo was being used – or that it was released under the Creative Commons license.

Vistek is taking pre-orders. The price for the body is 2099.00 Canadian.

Let’s see, I’ve got a birthday coming in December along with Christmas….hmmm….

Cat Supervisor

Ozzie seems to take his job quite seriously. I’m not entirely sure what his job is, but its not just house cat. It appears to be supervisor of all activities.

For instance, if we watch a DVD or more likely an old episode of StarGate on DVD, he’ll curl up on the arm of the couch next to Garnet and watch intently. He seems to particularly like SG1 vs. Atlantis, but I digress.

The last couple of days, Garnet has been busy pulling moss off our tar and gravel roof. I’d be happy to leave the moss alone, particularly as I’m reading more and more about green roofs, but our insurance company insists we get rid of it.

So while Garnet’s been busy up on the roof, Ozzie’s been busy too. Watching him work.

Ozzie the Cat Watches us Work

His vantage point today – the top of the chimney, presumably so he won’t miss any details of the job at hand.
