If I remember correctly, it was decided that the right to integrity should be waived to handle precisely these types of complaints. If CC exists to get rid of the middleman, the right to integrity reincorporates the need to contact the rights holders for any uses if you don't want surprises down the road. In this case he has a claim as there was no attribution but I will keep arguing that the right to integrity has no place in a CC license. If authors want to keep it they can also refrain from using CC licenses...International debate should be interesting.Phil> Date: Thu, 5 Apr 2007 12:50:39 -0400> From: andy at creativecommons.ca> To: cc-ca at lists.ibiblio.org> Subject: [CC-ca] Moral rights in version 3.0> > Hi everybody,> > I'm reviving this list in preparation for the move to version 3.0 of the > Creative Commons Canada licences, a process that will begin this Summer. > For those who don't know me, I'm Andy Kaplan-Myrth, one of the Joint > Project Leads for Creative Commons Canada.> > Earlier this week, Michael Geist posted this news summary to his > Internet Law News newsletter:> > > CANADIAN PHOTOGRAPHER CLAIMS VIOLATION OF CC LICENSE> > A Canadian photographer is considering suing a Member of> > Parliament for using a Creative Commons licensed photograph> > posted on Flickr in campaign literature.
