I know this really isn't a list question, except readers do use
computers and have experiences to share, and, it ties in with the
recent Copyright threads.
I took quite a few pictures at last weekend's Kitchener-Waterloo Human
Society SurfDogs. http://kwhumane.com/ [That's actually one of my
shots, down on the left side, below 'Surf Dogs 2009 Update'. Cool!]
They have a facebook presence as well.

5 are mine - even more way cool.]
I'm considering uploading photos somewhere, such as flickr. I see
flickr will maintain copyright. They even comprehend Creative Commons,
and so on. But they don't maintain Exif data. I could probably write
on the KWHS facebook wall with a link to wherever, once posted.
Anyone have pros / cons, suggestions, suggested sites, for this photo
posting? Is there value in myspace, instead, in case some blog or
other inane material makes sense?
It's been a while since I've looked into or thought about taking
pictures in public places. Hadn't even thought about the private /
commercial aspects of taking pictures, let alone getting releases signed.
Did come across
How much more / deeply need I think about or consider such?
