When I complained, I got this response from the editor:
Ken here, just want to give you a follow up on the status of Access Winnipeg since your photo was one of the photos that were in question.
Your photo has been removed. However, I also noticed that someone had blogged a BDI photo that you took as well. This photo has been removed as well.
We have been working with photography groups and have decided to ONLY use photos with a CREATIVE COMMONS license since having a CREATIVE COMMONS license is granting permission to use the photo.
Unfortunately, your account is causing problems for us, you have a CC license yet you still require permission to use your photos. I fear that this issue might happen again because our bloggers have now been instructed to use CC photos only. Our bloggers do not have the time to ask permission for all the photos we use hence the reason for the CC license photos. When our bloggers get a news article, it needs to be up right away without having time to get permission to use a photo.
I would recommend that you use an All Rights Reserve License with your photos to avoid any future issues. It is more of a license you are looking for - With all rights reserved, your photos will be not detectable by our cc photo search and other flickr users can still ask for your permission to use them.
The thing is, that's not what I'm looking for. What I want, is common courtesy. And I really don't think that's so fucking hard to do. I'll give you an example: NowPublic, an online news site, has used two of my photos, and have actually asked me. Both times, they sent me a form letter that outlined how they were going to be used, inquiring whether I'd cool with that or not. And I've said "yes" each time, because I appreciated the gesture.
Bottom line: you want to use something of mine, just ask. This "fast-paced world" we live in shouldn't be an excuse for a lack of manners. Thank you.
Addendum: However, if I actually KNOW YOU, feel free to tell me after the fact. I know we're cool.
EDIT: Check the comments for a change of heart.
