Erin Sparling 9 years ago I have been researching APIs of various sites, and am curious as to what this api can ultimately be used for. I am currently specing out an application that will pull in images from flickr, and video from... somewhere, hopefully vimeo. Anyway, when dealing with flickr, there is the ability to only pull in photos that people have marked with the Creative Commons commercial license, meaning it is totally appropriate to use this content. When dealing with Vimeo, it would be great to pull in contact videos into this application, but I can't recommend this until I figure out what rights the users have and / or are publishing their content under. Is it assumed that if the content exists as publicly viewable, that it can be used in any app that can be built around it? The app that is being built isn't really even a commercial app, more like a community site that features content along extreme sports themes.
