Photo hosting site Flickr is being accused of censoring its critics after removing a members page after she complained her images were being stolen and resold reports Wired.Com.
It is said that photographer Rebekka Guöleifsdóttira discovered that a UK based firm was selling her images as canvas prints and registered her displeasure on her Flickr page.
Her complaint received 450 supportive comments by other users which was apparently too much for Flickr who removed the photo and allegedly told Guöleifsdóttira, “Flickr is not a venue for to you harass, abuse, impersonate, or intimidate others. If we receive a valid complaint about your conduct, we will send you a warning or terminate your account.”
Subsequently Guöleifsdóttira has said that Flickr has apologised to her – but as of writing her pages remain missing.
