Newspaper Editor Says Posting a Photo to Facebook Makes it Public Domain

Normally, we wouldn’t give much attention to the thoughts of an editor/publisher for a small community newspaper. But the response to photographer Kristen Pierson‘s notice of copyright infringement and invoice for payment is such a classic compendium of bad thinking on intellectual property that it would be a disservice not to share it … just so you know what you’re up against.

Aviary Photo Editor Launches Full-Blown Android and iOS Apps

Aviary — the online photo editor that replaced Picnik as the official editor for Flickr — is expanding their scope by releasing an Android and iOS app. Up until now iOS users had no Aviary to speak of and Android users had only a “plugin,” but as of yesterday, full-blown apps for both operating systems are available in the iTunes App store and Google Play.

The new app will offer many of the same features you would find in the mobile Photoshop Express or iPhoto: you’ll be able to crop, rotate, add text, sharpen, blur, add preset effects, one-tap enhance and the list goes on. You can also rearrange all of those tools to your liking, so that they better fit the order you would use them in. And when you consider the fact that Aviary sells for the low low price of “free,” there’s really no reason iPhone and Android users shouldn’t go pick it up and give it a shot.

One of the services marked for termination is Picnik, the online photo editor that Google acquired back in 2010. The service will remain online until April 19, after which the team will be folded into the Google+ team.
