Think I wouldn't hurt to at least point them to the fact that this makes them incompatible with other open knowledge initiatives like for instance Wikipedia.

This was actually the collection that i was referring to, that they have "home-made" license information, they allow free and open use and re-use, but want to restrict the use in "inappropriate" (what ever that means). Me and Petri Kola (probably you met in Helsinki during the OKFestival) are planning workshops with users and developers to link these pictures with Finnish army's records etc.

>> Hi all, and particularly Sanna,
>> I was just looking at this great collection of World War II photos from Finland. Really nice footage. The licensing here is again a bit weird, it basically says it is a CC-BY-SA license, although it is not mentioned. Sanna, might be worth getting in touch with explaining a bit and mention the fact that using the CC license will make a much stronger legal case?
