Hey Kotaku: How about some Credit? PDF Print E-mail

Pictured here is Tim Schafer hosting the 2009 Game Developers Choice Awards.  Not a brilliant picture, but not bad either, so I decided to pop it onto my flickr.  I'm slightly annoyed that Kotaku is currently using it for their most recent post on the awards show.  There are two problems I have with this situation.  One: the photo is licensed for noncommercial use.  Two: there's no attribution.

On the first, that's easily gotten around with a quick e-mail to me.  Commercial magazines and websites ask me to use a CC-non-commercial photo, I say something along the lines of "send me a copy of the mag and

301 Moved Permanently

a-ok," and everyone's happy.  Easy as pie.  On the second, well, that's just sad.  For us artists, having our name there is really important, and it takes minimal effort.  It's not just the terms of the license; it's respectful.  Come on, Kotaku.  Even Fox News was able to manage that.

Edit: Thanks to Michael and

Kotaku for adding the link back to the source.  Really appreciated.
