You should put that link as the "Copyright Info URL" in IPTC data!

That is a classic.

I wonder what sort of release would be required for permission to embed that other persons work into the IPTC data for free ?

I just saw this for the first time earlier today! An equivalent (though not for photography) is:

"Pay the Writer" by Harlan Ellison; a similar expectation of working for free exists in that industry as well.

OK: so who is going to introduce the New Wave of underwater photography in Dangerous Visions Submerged?

Harlan Ellison begged, dissembled and even spent his own money to create the famous anthology of speculative fiction...
