Profit from Flickr Content

Flickr should develop ways for its members to make money off of the original content they post. Maybe they’ve already done it (I’m not exactly a Flickr power-user) – it isn’t exactly an original idea either. Give members a way to tag photos they’d like to sell – buyers could buy a license to use the image etc. There’s a lot of high-quality content on Flickr and it’s very searchable. The image in this post would make a great addition to a PowerPoint presentation.

    As it clearly said on the photo page (on Flickr) – All rights reserved. By blogging it here with your commentary aren’t you simply encouraging people to steal the image anyway?
