Adam Curry is fighting a Dutch tabloid against their (mis)use of Adam’s Flickr-pictures.

They published a picture from his Flickr account in their print magazine, while the pictures are protected under the Creative Commons license, allowing only Non-Commercial use of them. Read here the letter Adam wrote to Lawrence Lessig, the founder of Creative Commons, as well as the letter from his attorney to the magazine’s editor.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens in the coming days, I’m putting my money on Adam, firstly I think he is right and secondly he already won one case before! 😉
