    Lots of good comments, but too much for me to comment, lacking both legal
    and image processing experience.
    But back to basics:
    If a member posts links to images that he has spent time and creative skills
    to produce, why should he be more protective about links to the raw images,
    which only the camera has produced ??
    Concerning the right to use: Aren't we allowed to personally do any kind of
    processing of copyrighted images, as long as we don't publish the processed
    image? And write textual comments about what we have found? (E.g. several
    members wrote comments about the double flares from Sao Paolo)
