Colombian Flickr users and bloggers united against a regional newspaper that violated a Creative Commons license that a user placed on her photographs, a license which has full legal standing in Colombia. The campaign spread to dozens of blogs and into a Facebook group. However, this was not the first case of media that paid no attention to these licenses.
Videos that show "proof of life" were discovered last week when 3 emissaries of the FARC terrorist group were captured. The videos contain poignant images of several of the hostages that the FARC has in their captivity. Colombian bloggers respond to the sad videos and lament their use to push political agendas and complain that the videos were not distributed earlier.
