Creative Commons License in Court

Not in a US court, but one in the Netherlands. The Creative Commons license, used by many to provide flexibility in how material can (or cannot) be used, has never been legally tested. In this case, Adam Curry posted pictures of his daughter on Flickr and a magazine used them. Curry's photos were covered by a specific CC license, but the magazine said that wasn't made clear. The magazine lost. It will be interesting to see if this case holds any sway in the United States. [from CNET News.com]
