Levels of rights information

The Web is an almost inexhaustible source of resources. With an internet connection we are truly standing on the shoulders of giants. However, we cannot freely use any resource online, unless we know we are authorised to. For example:


The Flickr Copyright Policeman

Most people are proud about their photos.
They upload them to the web (e.g. Flickr) because they want the photos to be seen, but they want to limit how the photos are used by others. Some are more greedy (and license them with a all rights reserved sentence) and some just want to be mentioned (CC-BY).
