Flickr Censors Egypt Police Photos

An anonymous reader writes “Yesterday Flickr removed a photoset of Egyptian Secret Police photos which had been posted to an Egyptian journalist’s Flickrstream. The photos were obtained when the journalist acquired them from what he called ‘one of Mubarak’s largest torture facilities.’ Flickr cited the fact that the photos ‘were not the user’s own work’ as justification for the censorship, even though Flickr staffers themselves frequently upload work that is not ‘their own’ to their personal photostreams.”
