My Oktoberfest Adventure Begins

A few months ago, a friend called me up and asked if I wanted to go to Oktoberfest. He said he had enough miles to cover both our tickets. I couldn't pass up the opportunity and hence we're leaving at the crack of dawn tomorrow for a week in Munich, Germany. We're not taking laptops and we don't plan on doing a whole lot more than having a great time.

I think I know which hotel you're staying at. Is it kind of near to the station?

Thanks for stealing my picture.... Do you know the meaning of "copyright"?

Sorry, but that is not ok....

Is Klaus that long lost 5th member of Metallica?

Free click-throughs to your Flickr page. That is SO, not OK.

Posted by Johnny on September 22, 2008 at 09:53 AM MDT #

His name is mentioned and the picture is public. I wouldn't consider this "stealing".

Ok, in common it isn't a problem for me - but a short Flickrmail would have been a nice thing. I would have agreed for sure!

@Lars Fischer: My name is mentioned, because I wrote my name on the frame!

Coming to a conlusion - a short mail opens door in most cases.....


Ps: Have a nice time on the Oktoberfest in our Bavarian capital! ;-)

Oh, I forgot something, Lars Fischer: A picture being public on Flickr means not it is "open source" or free common licensed! My picture is saved by laws of copyright (look on the source-photopage exactly!).....thus usage in blogs is not legal without permission....

Will you leave on Saturday? I will arrive in Munich on Friday and would love to buy you a beer. I hope you will be able to post where you are without your iPhone.

@Klaus_GAP: I'm sorry for using your photograph without your permission. If you'd like me to remove it, I'd be happy to do so.

@Hendrik: We leave on Sunday and would be happy to get a free beer. ;-) Best thing to do is comment here or send me an e-mail. Currently, we're hoping to do a meetup tomorrow (Friday) at 12 noon in front of the Augustiner tent.

Hi Matt!

No, it is not a great problem - you may use it further. But remember next time to ask the photographer, the most people on flickr will be happy to be asked and give the permission for usage.

Have a nice time in Munich,
