Scobleizing the public domain


Superblogger Rober Scoble recently took a ton of photos of famous people at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland and released the photos into the public domain, along with all of his other photos posted on Flickr. (Note that Flickr’s most liberal license option is CC Attribution, so that’s what he’s chosen there.)

Of course the photos immediately started being used in Wikipedia articles.

Here’s a recent Scoble photo, not from Davos, but another recent event (coverage in the San Francisco Chronicle):
