Flickr apologizes and stops selling Creative Commons photos →

December 19, 2014 |

Bernardo Hernandez, Vice-President of Flickr:

We hear and understand your concerns, and we always want to ensure that we’re acting within the spirit with which the community has contributed. Given the varied reactions, as a first step, we’ve decided to remove the pool of Creative Commons-licensed images from Flickr Wall Art, effective immediately. We’ll also be refunding all sales of Creative Commons-licensed images made to date through this service.
