Flickr API Niceness
« on: December 20, 2010, 09:53 PM »
Well, I need to upload photos en masse, and Facebook just isn't working right, so I've decided to go with Flickr.

Now I check the API Key page, and see this (source):

First, we need to know whether or not your app is commercial.
Choose Non-Commercial if:

    * Your app doesn't make money.
    * Your app makes money, but you're a family-run, small, or independent business.
    * You're developing a product which is not currently commercial, but might be in the future.
    * You're building a personal website or blog where you are only using your own images.

Choose Commercial if:

    * You or your agency works for a major brand.

AND one of the following:

    * You want to make a profit.
    * You charge a fee for your product or services.
    * You will bring Flickr content into your product and intend to sell those services.


At first I saw the button text, and kind of groaned, but read further.

Non-commercial includes:

* Your app makes money, but you're a family-run, small, or independent business.

Which really makes things a lot easier for a small guy like me. Lord knows that big business licenses can be overwhelming...

Anyways, just wanted to post that as it was something I thought was very nice of them.
