That is an interesting post. I wonder why they feel that they even need to make such a declaration.

BTW, according to Flickr's Terms of Service, the photo should not have been downloaded and uploaded to your server, but instead be placed on your blog via a link to the original photo. The photo should have a link back to its original page. Could you please fix this?

Thank you,
