Flickr teams with Pinterest, releases share button for proper photo attribution (venturebeat.com). A picture, they say, is worth a thousand words.

Frustrated with Flickr

Marketing for Nonprofits

I LOVE FLICKR. I LOVE MANY OF THE AMAZING PHOTOS ON FLICKR. I GO TO FLICKR ALL THE TIME FOR INSPIRATION but for the life of me I can't figure out the copyright rules. Here's my beef. I know. The rules are listed here. But what exactly do they mean? Can I cut and paste any photo I see as long as I acknowledge the photographer or is sharing only approved for photos under Creative Commons license? I'd appreciate any feedback.
