Is publication of a photograph in the news pages of a newspaper a commercial or noncommercial use?  My first thought was that it must be commercial, but then I read something in the FAQs that suggests that web site publication is noncommercial, and that made me wonder.  Let me stipulate that the newspaper is a commercial enterprise.
