this photo actually has a non commercial part of the CC license as well. Where you have goodle adds on your page that you probably get paid for that is probably breaks the rules of the agreement. But where it is my photo i am not going to hold it against you. But you should make sure that the license that you claim the photo has it the actual one that it has.

this is an interesting issue. i don't think of myself as a commercial site. i don't have google ads. i do have some amazon links to albums i like through an affiliate plan. they're there mainly because i want to encourage people to buy certain albums. but i'd rather get rid of than avoid using cc content...of which i'm a big supporter.

does my situation really prevent me from legally using the non-commercial cc stuff? i mean, it's posted on flickr...which has advertisements on it. i'm gonna read up on this and do whatever i need to to be 100% in line with the license.

I'm not sure that flickr has advertisements at least i really haven't noticed any. But the case with flickr is that the person who puts their photos up there chose to do it so it doesn't break their CC license. It's when others post photos that don't belong to them that infringes on the license. Like i have an apple ipod parody that i made. If apple took that picture and posted it on their site without my permission that would be breaking the CC license because their site is commercial even if they're not selling the image. I don't know much about how CC licenses work, but i'm pretty sure that if someone uses someone elses photo in anyway related to a business they run or even on a site that generates income regardless of how if the CC license includes the non commercial agreement it cannot be used. I hope this helps some. And i personally don't mind you using my photo even if you make money on your site. I am new to photography and am just happy to get my stuff seen.
