Could you elaborate on that link. What is good about this camera, etc.? Also this camera is not available to everyone at the moment.

It sounds a bit like you are associated with this website. If so, you need to declare this association. Within the stackexchange community we like to have at least a summary of any link that is included in the answer.

comment Can I make commercial use of an image which is readily available but with unclear licensing?
@MarchHo In this case I am talking about people who take photographs for art or business (e.g. professional photographers etc.). By not using a licence it should be considered that they have explicitly decided to not allow the use of the image, rather than assuming that they do not care. In fact assuming the latter deprives the photographer of the right to control their work.

@MarchHo I wasn't really talking about the technical legal definition of theft, more about the moral implications.

By NOT using a license that allows anyone to use their product (because that is what it is) photographers explicitly say that they do not wish for people to use their images without obtaining an explicit agreement.

Drinking at a water fountain is legal because the water fountain is provided expressly for the purpose of drinking. To use another example, it is EXACTLY the same as copying software, which someone has put effort and time and creativity into. Their work is original, and therefore they deserve to have control over how it is distributed and what they receive from it. It is perfectly ok to ask someone to use their work, however, using without express permission, either in the form of a license such as the various Creative Commons licenses or an individual usage license, is immoral.

I would bet that there are exceptions in law for knocking on peoples doors, and if it is a public fountain then the water is publicly owned and so is by extension owned by anyone who pays their taxes. It is also far more equivalent to compare the stealing of a photograph with the stealing of a physical artwork (such as a lino print, if only for the repeatability)

comment Convert leica-m to c mount? Ideal lens for low light photography?
@adam what makes the Leica more expensive: optical performance, larger image circle, the brand name and probably build quality.

Morally we cannot condone the second part of your answer which suggest that stealing is 'worth it' when it is am infringement on the rights of the artist who created the work.

comment What do I need to do to take Aurora borealis photos by iPhone4S?
Can you please add why app is better than other methods of taking photos of the Auroras. Other useful information would be when the app works best and what the user is required to do.
