There is much handwringing over Creative Commons. Is it broken? What is commercial use? Opinions differ, discussion goes on…

Meanwhile, over at Flickr, there is talk of Schmaps trying to use CC-licensed photos.

My gosh, it’s like Movable License all over again! What constitutes “commercial use” anyway? Google ads? Amazon affiliate links? PayPal donate buttons?

The sad thing is, unless the parties involved can agree, it will probably take a court of law to determine such things, and if that is the case, then it’s really simple: The side with the most money/best lawyers wins.
