Flickr won’t print Creative Commons wall art after all, issues refunds to customers

Flickr today has killed a new service that promised to allow you to print wall art of any creative commons image from the service.

The move comes only weeks after its initial announcement, after the community was outraged by the company moving to print creative commons images without warning.

All Killer, No Filler

We’re bringing Momentum to New York: our newest event, showcasing only the best speakers and startups.

Flickr VP, Bernando Hernandez, said in a blog post today that it was “sorry we let some of you down” and that it received a lot of feedback from the community that wasn’t “in the spirit” of Creative Commons.

Those who have purchased wall art under the creative commons program will receive refunds and the company will only allow printing of Wall Art from your own photos as well as “licensed artists.”
