Bike sheds

I had prepared a modified version of this photo, making each bike shed door a different color, and with labels on them saying “KB”, “MiB”, “Tb”, “Gib”, etc.

(It was in reference to this thread, in case you were wondering).

But then I noticed that the original photo had a CC by-nc-nd license, which means that derivative works are forbidden without permission. I could have asked for it, but when/if I received it, it would already be too late for the joke.

So, no modified photo for you. And how does something on which you cannot base your own work be a part of any sort of “Creative Commons”?

    Mako has the same question about CC, which is why he started http://freedomdefined.org/

    It doesn’t, which is why Creative Commons is mostly a waste of people’s time. It’s just more licence proliferation.
