CC strikes back: For the first time, a Dutch court found a violation of a Creative Commons-licensed image. (Here’s what the court found, in Dutch.)
In Curry vs. Weekend the magazine Weekend had used an image by Adam Curry, which he had published on his flickr account using a Creative Commons license which prohibited commercial use. (As a license, Curry used the Attribution- NonCommercial- ShareAlike 2.0.)
According to netzpolitik.org, this is the first time a court actually defended a CC license. So this is real good news. (By the way, Weekend magazine had to pay a fine of 1.000 euros.) Good job, Lessig & Co.
