Flickr Cracks Down on Screenshots


Online Worlds Collide

"Online worlds collide as Second Life fans and Flickr spar over how to handle screenshots on the popular photo-sharing site. At stake is a little-known Flickr policy of flagging accounts that contain mostly non-photographic images and preventing images from those accounts from appearing in public areas of the site, including search.
